Lazy duck shoot­ers

Weekend Herald - - VIEWPOINTS - Alan Ernest, Whakatane.

What is it with duck shoot­ers, who are ei­ther so lazy or so en­vi­ron­men­tally de­void, that they dis­card their plas­tic shells, beer cans and food wrap­pers with ab­so­lute con­tempt over my farm? Today I re­moved 62 shot­gun shells and food rub­bish from un­der­neath a kahikatea tree where three shoot­ers were ob­served on open­ing day. Af­ter 35 years of pick­ing up af­ter these “sports” peo­ple, that’s it. Next year the “No Shoot­ing” signs are go­ing up.
