I can't imagine having to pay big dollars to have access to consistent waterfowl hunting, leasing etc and I hope I never have to.
But American duck hunting does have its attractions I like the attitude that you guys have, in that you revere and cherish watefowl hunting, take it seriously and have put alot of effort into developing good equipment for it. For instance I could not imagine anyone ever taking a bird to a taxidermist, that would generally be considered weird and a waste of money. Duck hunting is referred to as "duck shooting" in New Zealand, because in general it is not taken that seriously.
Also I like the fact that you guys have a lot more huntable and interesting looking duck and geese species.
If you are interested in New Zealand duck hunting check out the Duck Commander's Duckmen of Middle earth DVD (I'm the guy who gets a hard time for winning the calling contest and refusing to take his camo mask off). There is also an older video which Cabelas used to sell called fire in the sky which starred some friends of mine.
