    Lets have a safe one. Good luck send some birds my way.
    Went to a F&G duck night last week and they were pushing the new transport laws. So lets all remember gun and game license, trigger locks, ammo separate locked box, leave alcohol at home ect. My son was told that the police will be out in force checking this stuff. Pretty easy for them as most out on the road pre dawn will be hunters. They are looking for fit and proper and if you are not following the law you are not fit and proper.

    Good luck to everyone. Thanks to a mate, I have a spot in a maimai on public land. We'll see how it goes, couple of ducks and I'll be happy. As chindit says, if the police are going to check compliance, now will be the time. Whatever you think of the new legislation, it's best to avoid trouble.

    Query how does one lock away a couple slabs of 12g ? I certainly don't have a lock box anywhere near that size. ....or a glove box that size for that matter. ....got everything else sussed as far as transport is concerned

    I joined two duck seasons before Covid-19. Besides the bigger chance of getting ducks on the first daylight, is there any other reasons? Thanks
    Always short of one more good fishing & hunting friend.

    Ha, I wish I had that problem. The way the last few openings have been around here I could have locked all necessary rounds in a box the size of a coffee cup. Still, here's hoping!

    Yeah I'll probably use half a slab maybe less but there's always someone who "forgets to buy ammo" still would be nice to know how one is supposed to comply surely I'm not expected to buy a massive steel lock box to lock my ammo in whilst I'm in my vehicle whic is basically a big steel lock box on wheels. To be clear I'm not talking about leaving it unattended just for my road trip down to where I'm shooting where it will be locked up in his safe till the morning.

    Lock the car doors perhaps then all your ammo is in a big steel box��
    Trigger lock on the semi auto and all good you would think................or perhaps not its all down to interpretation

    There is more chance of getting more ducks if there are lots of people out shooting, because it keeps the ducks moving around from spot to spot. Opening weekend would easily have the most people out shooting.
