The New Zealand duck hunting season opened over the weekend. In early reports the ducks are ahead with 3 hunters being shot in the first few hours. The Kiwi news reporters almost sounded disappointed that alcohol was not involved. Can you imagine in the early hours of the morning on the lake side the ducks all lining up with their short, stubby legs and doing the going to war Haka before the season opener? The number of duck casualties has not been reported.
