Issue 58 - Apr/May 2017

As I write this the roar is well and truly underway! Fi and I heard hee-haws and our earliest ever single call on Sunday the 19th of March. 

There’s been plenty of reports of Reds roaring all over the country, and Willie is in Fiordland filming bugling Wapiti in the first period while I’m stuck in the office getting this magazine to the printers. That’s all about to change very shortly though, I can assure you!

The weather has had a bit of a change around in the last month, with the north and east of the N.I. getting lots of rain, and the west and south of the S.I. pretty dry and settled. All this rain has gone a long way towards filling all the duck ponds and wetlands in the N.I., and the Waikato district in particular is looking the best it’s been for years pre-season. Unfortunately little of this rain has got down to our beloved Lake Ellesmere which is still sitting at rock bottom, and if it doesn’t change soon, the majority of the ducks will be on man-made irrigation ponds again, which are not a particularly satisfying place to hunt in our opinion - we love the vast and wild wetlands and rivers! 

Don’t forget to watch the special 1.5 hour long waterfowl episode, Wednesday May 3rd, 8.30pm on Choice TV!
