The May 23 opening brought smiles to hunters young and old who had to wait 55 weeks since the opening of 2019 due to the Covid – 19 virus outbreak...
Yes, Opening Day is Finally Happening!
Over the first two weeks of the lockdown, Fish & Game have been scenario planning around what form the game bird season might take.
The last weekend for mallard/grey and NZ shoveler duck hunting is the 27/28th of July.
