KNOW YOUR WATERFOWL - IMPROVE YOUR ODDS

Understanding waterfowl can aid you hunting success. Different species have different habits so knowing a little bit about the birds can be to the hunter’s advantage. With the game bird hunting season opening May 6, 2017), former Hawke’s Bay Fish & Game field officer Tom Winlove has written three excellent articles on Duck Habits, Grey Ducks, and the NZ Shoveler, in a bid to help hunters come to grips with some key target species.
