I work with a fellow from Kiwi land last name of Grimwood his family farms there and he was in the airforce until about 15 yrs ago. Also I have a sister living in Australia. Back to the thread, what types of ducks do you hunt and what are the bag limits/seasons, etc... How do they compare to Canada and the US?

Sorry had to edit my last post missread your question

We have ducks both introduced and natives.
Our main introduced duck is mallard and is now more common than natives.50 years ago the NZ grey was more common.Natives on our licence include Paradise shell duck, grey duck and New Zealand shovler.Natives that are protected includes various teals, scaup (our only true diver) and the endangerd whio or blue duck.

Other bird species we hunt include Black swan, pukeko, pheasant, Canada
Geese and quail.

Our licence costs a little over $50US and covers all the above birds and both islands of new zealand. Bag limits vary from region eg Mallards could be anything from 20 to 10. Magazine capacity could be whatever, it dont matter. Feeding ponds is also allowed also. We are a relativly liberal country so the sex of the duck dont matter much.Season runs for about two months depending .Opening starts in all of new zealand on the 1st weekend of May.

This year was the first year we had to use Steel Shot I found it not to much of a problem at all personally.

Most rivers are queens chain and allow right of hunting whitin 20 meters although private wet lands are the place to be.FishnGame also run ballots for hunting on some wet lands.

We have 7 species of deer here and some of the best fly fishing in the world! All deer belong to the public and it is free to hunt deer in forest and national parks.

We are pretty damn lucky!!! :getdown:
