Duck-shooting results plus new boots and jackets.

Opening morning was Saturday. Dick and Tristan (pictured below on the left with his ducks) were out shooting, as they do every year. Tom was away on a long range shooting trip and was able to hit targets at 1600 and 2000 metres, while Selwyn held the fort in the shop. Business predictably died down on the weekend as many people were out in their maimai’s.

Tristan and two of his buddies shot their limit of paradise ducks, as well as a few mallards on opening morning, but this seems to the exception to the rule with most shooters in the Otago region struggling with clear skies and good visibility for the ducks. Dick and friends bagged 38 on Saturday in Southland, but there will be plenty of opportunity left in the season to get out and about. We still have 20% off second-hand shotguns, but we have had a good run on them so get in quick if you want to take advantage of this deal.
We now stock the Hunters Element Echo boots, an excellent medium-duty boot, lightweight, with a medium cut for ankle support, suede leather upper and Vibram sole.
Ridgeline Monsoon jackets are now in stock for only $160, with a recommended retail of $269. These are great waterproof anorak jackets that are seam-sealed and have neoprene cuffs to keep water out.
Ridgeline Spiker jackets are essentially a kids version of the very popular Torrent jacket, normally $99, we now have them in stock for $79 in either camo or olive.
