Ive managed to stave off the dreaded "Duck fever" untill today,
its only a few weeks till opening (1st sat in may)
this morning I was spreading fertiliser on a farm I hadnt done before...drains everywhere, big wide open ones with raupo and reeds growing around the edges and the water was filled with BIG FAT MALLARDS ,white swans(protected) black swans (fair game) pukekos (swamp hens) and every thing else Shocked its a wonder/miracle I didnt prang truck or drive it into a ditch I didnt know where to look Confused
managed to get it all sown and the farmer came over to see me
a good fella he is too, we had a chat and it gets shot opening weekend but not much after and YES YES YES YES YES I am allowed to give him a ring and go down to shoot the place and he is happy for me to dog it the week after opening Very Happy Very Happy to say Im stoked is an understatement Very Happy
oh yeah and the next place I went to has 50 odd paradise ducks eating the new grass and Im allowed to go after them too..WOOHOOO Very Happy Very Happy

I am green with envy! It is still sonowing up here and I am already starting to plan my duck hunting year. Some friends and I are going to hit North Dakota this fall so I am chomping at the bit.

went out today and had a look at pond we built a month or so back with a digger. its filled nicely as we have had over 6" of rain so far this week and still persisting down. the pond hasnt completely sealed yet and no ducks seen but thats ok we knew it was a long term goal. drove around and saw a dozen or so parries in pairs and a few mallards just to get juices flowing.
the lake we shoot is fulling up nicely so with any luck we will not have mud to contend with and will be able to sit in tree line to shoot.

I bet you and Bec, and the dirt magnets if course, are well last night mate. There is no better feed than wild caught tucker mate, and it's so much better than additive laced commercial food.
