New Zealand duck hunting was truly a fantastic trip made all the better by our hosts. The trip was nothing short of spectacular….once the flight was out of the way (ugh!). Certainly no lack of birds, and we had bagged all the birds we were after by the second morning. Ducks, geese, pukekos, and even pheasants just came out of the woodwork. Paradise shelducks are just about the coolest bird I’ve ever hunted…kind of like dumb geese. Bagged some really cool mallard/grey duck hybrids, too.
The food and hospitality were absolutely top-notch. I certainly didn’t lose any weight, and Sheryl and I had a blast just staying up late BS’ing with our hosts and probably drinking way too much beer, wine and port. Awesome trip that we’ll never forget. You’ve got another winner. In the meantime, we’re trying to figure out a cool trip for next season. Sheryl wants to try Obregon…wouldn’t take much arm twisting to get me to go. I’d like to go someplace to hammer specklebellies. Or we may just pull the trigger and do another Argentina trip. Life is full of tough decisions.
