    I use a 20 gauge shotgun. How long can I continue hunting ducks with it?


    The simple answer is for as long as you like. *If you hunt waterfowl over open water, you will have to use non-toxic shot from 2021. The new rules will be phased in over four years to give game bird licence holders with sub-gauge shotguns like 20 gauges time to get accustomed to the change and make the transition to non-toxic shot. *For the first two seasons – 2018 and 2019 – hunters can use up their existing stocks of sub-gauge lead ammunition. *In 2020, if they are hunting waterfowl on Department of Conservation or Fish & Game controlled land, they will have to use non-toxic shot and nothing else. *From 2021, non-toxic shot will be required for waterfowl hunting over open water in all shotguns except the .410 on all lands, public and private.


    Ok ... so a walk for quail with the dog means my ammo is still good to go ...

    I wonder how that goes if you are putting down a wounded bird, to ease its suffering. Or do you just walk on by ?
