I have created this website as a way for me the share my passion for Duck Hunting New Zealand. There will posts on things outdoors, including Four Wheel Driving, Fresh and Salt Water Fishing and of course Duck Hunting.

My online alias Parriehunter came about from my very first opening weekend where my Father and I had a very good hunt on Paradise Duck’s. Jump on in and have read, please leave any comments below.

The Paradise Shelduck (Tadorna variegata) is a large goose-like duck endemic to New Zealand. It is a shelduck, a group of large goose-like birds which are part of the bird family Anatidae. The genus name Tadorna comes from Celtic roots and means “pied waterfowl”. Known to the Māori as Pūtangitangi, but now commonly referred to as the “Paradise duck”, it is a prized game bird. Both the male and female have striking plumage: the male has a black head and barred black body, the female a white head with a chestnut body. (Wikipedia)
