Duck hunting advice


This Saturday marks this season’s duck shooting opening weekend, when many duck hunters take to the maimai. Fish & Game NZ acting chief executive Brian Anderton said game bird hunters have much to be excited about this season. “After the past summer conditions, there are plenty of ducks around, and with more relaxed Covid-19 restrictio­ns, this season looks to be the best for years.” With a plentiful duck population and eased Covid rules, the NZ Mountain Safety Council and Fish & Game NZ are encouragin­g duck hunters to have a safe and successful season, but advise them to brush up on the seven basic firearms safety rules.
