What happened to that sweet little tinny you bought last year to use?? Dont tell me it's hidden the the middle  of that somewhere, or is it relegated to transport and retreiving? Nice looking set up though, are the drums full of rum to assist floatation or courseCool

The solution to any problem - work, money, love, whatever - is to go fishing - the worse the problem the longer the fishing trip should be.

Yep ready and raring. Raised the overflow and put some camo round the maimai.
Doesn't seem to be as much birds around this year here in the Waikato, lots of guys grumbling that they got no water in their ponds.
Awesome looking maimai BP

You probably did Brown, I took it out to the Kaipara and put it in. Its tucked into a mangrove island and all camoed up and ready to go.
 
We crisened christened it the "Ducks Nuts" as it went into the water. Cant wait to blast some ducks out of it.

Thats a real bugger mate.
Wrecked my shoulder in late 2008 and had the op 2009. became a bystander by mid morning opening day. lucky if i put through a box before the shoulder and arm wouldn't work.
hoping it holds together this season.

I gotta work opening day, but will stalk a pond before and after work.  Then it's geese and pheasants for me!
Good luck out there boys, shoot straight.

I have updated to a Fabarm with a kickoff this season. So far I have only used it on sporting clays but I'm really happy with how it shoots. A lot less recoil.
 
Lucky bugger shooting Geese Nuthead, we just dont get enough of them up this way. There is a large farm we are going to shoot if they turn up, but its a small flock or only around 80 odd so the numbers shot will be limited.
 
Hoping to do a lot more Pheasant this year. I have permits to shot some of the Northland DOC land so plan to spend a numer of weekends walking these areas with the dog.

I certainly hope that the SS Bushpig Duck Punt gets more water time that the Senator.

I will await the Shooting Reports eagerly.

Good luck and aim straight Mr Bushpig.

Absolutely tons of ducks in the waikato river tween hamilton and cambridge,been going up n down the river most days for the past few weeks and there's hundreds of ducks appeared there lately.Dont seem to be worried about the boat though,can get within 20ft of most groups of them.
 
Not really up on duck hunting protocols but are you allowed to pot them from a boat? dont see much difference tween a stopped boat and a punt.

If you think you are too small to make a difference,try sleeping with a mosquito in your tent.

Old Fart pretty much has it sussed, still we must keep up tradition, can't remember how many openings on the trott, have just broken down a moose for the mai mai feast, that will probably be the best of it, 1 pond completely dry and the next best just about dry, getting worse by the year, bugger me I'll have to take up fishing.

South Island is where it's at for me. Ducks, parries and thousands of Canada's. The wetest summer in years so the skies are black. Best of all big limits...... goose suasages and venison patties Tongue

Yeah you can shoot them from a boat, you just have to be at anchor or drifting, not aloud to be under motor, Waikato is choco cause there is no water anywhere else!! 2nd hundred year draught in 3 years.

I feel cheated of not enough time in the maimai and not enough rounds through the barrel, I was only just getting warmed up when we had already reached our limits by 8-30. Would have been alot earlier but I think my barrel had a bend in it.

The boys did well this weekend, we baged our limit both days. Sunday was a bit harder with less hunters and good weather. next weekend looks like rain so it will be perfect for another shoot up. Off chasing Pheasant this morning

Chewy's ducks are missing from the picture. Its his one man punt in the back ground. He is already talking about a bigger one so I have first dibs on buying it. Perfect for one man and his dog.

went out on saturday and had a ball. 
6 mallards is a small limit if you ask me!  could have shot a whole heap more but we packed up and headed off for a beer.   got a couple of parries that came to see what the commotion was.  i think next weekend we might set some parry decoys up on the grass behind the maimai and see if they come in.   (off to buy a parry call and some deeks)
