 With a clean green image we pride ourselves in our  fantastic hunting and fishing.
Safe, friendly  flying with  Qantas

 Duck in New Zealand dont migrate, this means they are in our area the whole hunting season.
  Ducks are very weary early in the season due to hunting pressure but by the start of june have
 settled  and are getting hungry as we get further into winter. This helps the hunter as the ducks
 are now feeding  in young  grass fields and grain that is fed to stock by farmers, also they are
 decoying and coming into calling much better than  they were in  the earlier part of the season.
Our native new zealand paradise duck and the cunning mallard are our main ducks hunted.

We hunt mornings with layout blinds , hay bale blinds ,and permanent blinds.
On  fields , ponds , rivers swamps and back waters with decoys , robo ducks and silhouette's
The afternoon is spent hunting other animals  i.e.: turkey , quail, deer , pig , goat or smallgame

Paradise duck is native only to New Zealand and a pair make a prized taxidermy memento
 of a great trip down under.
Hunt them over decoys in fields or on water.
Large groups most welcome with transfers from Queenstown and Dunedin .
Accommodation available close to prime hunting.
Hunting equipment supplied i.e.: shotgun , ammo , waders , license .
