About Me

Waiting for the ducks

A little bit about me, I am in my late-thirties, a Network Engineer living back in Rolleston, Canterbury after living in Upper Hutt and working in Wellington for almost 10 years. It is great to be back in the Mainland and hopefully, more hunting opportunities will arise.

My passion in life has been waterfowl hunting since my very first memory at the age of four being out with Dad and coming home with a single duck. Started shotgun shooting at the age of 11 with my first season on the ducks when I was 12.

Since then I have been fortunate to hunt birds from Gore up to Auckland and almost everywhere in between. With some very memorable hunts in North Canterbury and North Waikato.

At over 25 years since my first outing, I am still learning and want to share my experiences with the world.

I have also had a couple of articles published in Rod & Rifle on duck and pigeon hunting.
