What a great duck hunting 2017 season is turning into.
It all started with a 7 man limit of mallards with 60 parries on the Saturday in North Canterbury. This was a first for us to limit out. We tried to hunt some geese but in their typical style they changed plans on us and only got one mob come in.
B&P with Beretta doesn’t get better than this.
This is what duck hunting is about
Opening day 2017

Game carrier thanks to my lovely wife and some geese.
After that start, I got over to the Wairarapa and this success has continued with another three hunts all coming home with birds. We haven’t been able to hit the rough weather but I am happy to still come home with birds.
Even got my father over to the lake, we had a go at a few birds but only came out with a single drake. It was a good shot and Ace did well to find the wounded bird.

Got Justin a duck on one of the trips which are always nice to see and a bit of a confidence boost for him.
Here is a bit of a teaser with some footage of opening weekend.
I am not sure if I will be able to head out again before the end of the season. But even if I don’t, this has been the most successful since coming to Wellington.
