Opening day for 2021 is Saturday the 1st of May, at 6:45 am.
The mallard, grey, NZ shoveler duck, pukeko and swan seasons all close on the last Sunday in July.
Mixed but dry weather with light swirly wind was the order for opening weekend; bloody good for socialising and introducing new folks to duck hunting but pretty difficult to hunt!
We are predicting that the 2020 game bird hunting season will provide excellent hunting, but due to Covid-19, not quiet in the normal way.
Over the first two weeks of the lockdown, Fish & Game have been scenario planning around what form the game bird season might take.
The traditional game bird hunting season is drawing to a close in the Central South Island Region.
Many of us put the gun away after opening but there is no reason to; bird numbers are great this season and there is plenty of space to find a spot.
It was another opening weekend of beautiful weather and pleasant conditions.
We are predicting that the 2019 game bird hunting season will provide excellent hunting.
