    Haha! You must have been shooting in the lower North Island too Dundee!!!

    Had a great May but bloody slow end to the season... in fact June was quiet full stop in the 'Rapa.

    Pic of my last shoot on Lake Wairarapa (closing week). Nothing flew until well after last light. Oh well, there's next season to look forward to LOL

    It's a 2 1/2" chambered Arthur Turner boxlock with 25" barrels choked cylinder and full, made in 1907.
    I'm the third owner, and the only seasons it has missed were 1941 - 45. I take a couple of birds with it each season.

    Nice lab, my 6 month old black lab flushed and retrieved her first quail the other day. Be nice to manage 20 with her before the season ends. Plan to chase the chukar next year with her as well.

    Mines turning 10 in Feb. She’s my go to duck, quail and deer dog. Can’t beat a good labs nose to sniff them out and her drive is unreal.

    I have watched Pukes destroy ducks nests and catch and eat the ducklings. One foot on their body and pulling them apart. They will hunt and hunt untill they have gottten them all.
    I wish i had videoed it for the greenies.... it was in a reserve too, so no bangy bang stick allowed.
