Both Barrels April 2023
- North Canterbury
It’s only a few days till Opening Morning, and it's pretty exciting to see good mobs of ducks flying about around the region.
We've had a good summer with plenty of frequent rain, which has meant plenty of habitat available for all of our waterfowl and no stress of drought.
Duck numbers are good, and there should be plenty of opportunity for hunters on Opening Morning.
Now's the time to be doing any last-minute preparation and getting your gear ready for opening morning, don't forget to buy your licence too.
Maimai checks are complete!North Canterbury Fish & Game staff have been out on Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere checking and marking the locations of all maimai on the lake as part of our management agreement.
Duck night May 3rd
The annual Hunting & Fishing Tower Junction Duck Night is on Wednesday, May 3rd.
This popular event always has some great advice and tips from the team of hunters that the crew at Hunting & Fishing Tower Junction assembles and is well worth attending.
There will be a bunch of us from North Canterbury Fish & Game there as well, ready to answer any questions that hunters have for us.
There have been a few changes to the hunting regulations for North Canterbury Hunters this year.
Be sure to check all the other regulations by downloading a copy of them here.
Above all, the team here at North Canterbury Fish & Game wish everyone a safe hunting season.
