    cripes the parrie flappers have only taken to the wing in last week or so...they should be easy pickings.

    they flying up the river and there were no shortage of birds in the air this time last year.

    we walked in on at least 2 to 300 of each [geese and parries ] on the way to the maimai last year.

    hopefuly another day like thisName:  thumbnail.jpg
Views: 134
Size:  15.6 KBalbeit with only a 5 bird limit on parries.

    that day in the pic we ran out of ammo c404 and me before birds.
    being there latish and a bluebird day we didn't have high hopes hence under 40 rounds between us.

    think people hunting the dairy farm same day kept birds on the wing even after we packed up with empty guns and full bags.

    however dem pesky parries being even more pesky than ever remained on bloody holiday ,its rumoured at clubbird bromley shit ponds .
    after a couple of cups of tea and assorted sandwiches.a consensus was reached re our dliemma
    Buggered if we know
    and as i type this whilst enjoying a post outing ale
    Im still buggered if i know.
    what i do know is dont load ya semiauto with a mix of3"32gmand 3"34gm for a test fire after last firing it hmmmm18 months ago
    holy shit batman more thumps than a walrus in the throes of orgasm.
    plenty of mallards ,teal swans and very distant geese(its like the sahara desert out there at present with lake open to sea)but its eyerball only/.

    yep lake lower than a snake in a wagon rut.
    birds aren't gonna be where theres no water or grub.

    fuckin ecan cock knockers and doc dicks ive never see the place look so scruffy.
    over grown weed ridden mess.
    if you or I left our house paddocks like that they,d be on our arses about fire risk.
    they've killed all the willows by the look of it.
    i.l give them the benefit of the doubt and say the opening was a necessity and theres just been no southerly to close it cos theres plenty of water in the Selwyn and l2.
    but she,s barren as spose the upside is dog killin algae bloom close enough to the handy walks.
    still unusuall to hear nothing parrie or goose wise.

    Don't know where the Parries have gone to from round here - I am near Cust - but they will be back soon when the grain harvest starts which looks like end of Jan into Feb. Last year there were mobs of 1000 - 1500 on some paddocks of stubble.

    It`s all Kotuku`s fault, he`s been practicing calling them in but he forgot to shut the bath room window, so you know there the buggers are all hiding!!.
