    Yes I am extremely excited about roaming around all my paddocks putting wounded ducks out of their misery, as I was last year, and the year before that. I'm also looking forward to the obligatory news report of "drunken idiot shoots mate"
    I also look forward to finding piles of dead ducks thrown down banks or into farmers paddocks after all the "look how many ducks I shot and lined up on the bonnet of my ute because I am an alpha hunter" photos have been posted to Facebook.

    Your page been hacked by antis Ryan? There's always a few rotten eggs in every bunch, seen plenty of unused or poorly disposed of pigs and deer too.

    To answer the OP's question very excited and good to go, as soon as work finishes.

    Yep @7mmTom. Just got back from paddling up the creek in my canadian canoe loaded to the gunwales with deks and a short stepladder to sit on amongst the carex in my chest waders. A low limit here, but am looking forward to it. Dogs had a recce around the swamp and we set up a spot for wheelchair access for my para mate.
    @Ryan_Songhurst. We're not all killers and wasters. I have never wasted any of my birds, always hunt with good dogs and lose sfa wounded.
    Roll on the Opening Good luck all genuine duck hunters.

    Some "bunches" seem to have quite a few more rotten eggs than others. Mark my words, by the end of the weekend some idiot would have shot some poor bastard. I'm sick of it every year there's ducks flapping around with broken wings etc, every year I find piles of dead ducks just dumped somewhere (trying to find my post from last year with photographic evidence of this)
    Every year the companies that make alcohol seem to push their brands as if duckshooting and getting shitfaced is something that goes hand in hand (don't give me that "oh but I am a golden boy and we only get the beers out when the shotguns are put away" because that may be true for you but it's not for a LOT of others)
    Need to get rid of the whole gamebird season thing and make it year round so there's no rush of mad idiots making an event out of opening day, it's the same as all the blokes that rush out for their one hunt of the year on Easter weekend and shoot someone in the Bush, happens every year. Its a shambles

    Here we go, here's last year's efforts from some idiot who decided my paddock looked like a good spot to throw all his/her dead ducks. What a waste

    @Ryan_Songhurst mate that's just plain bullshit by so called hunters. Absolutely no excuse for that and do not condone their actions at all. As for an all year season it would be unsustainable and unrealistic due to different numbers in each region etc. I also agree that alcohol companies taking advantage of and advocating drinking and shooting to make a buck is piss poor too.

    Understand your frustrations but most guys are pretty darn good, make the most of the birds dispose of the waste correctly and don't blast at ducks out of range wounding them, atleast all the waterfowlers I know.
