Mountain Safety Council warns duck hunters to avoid alcohol when shooting.
The duck season starts on the first Saturday of May and forty thousand passionate duck shooters will head off to their maimais on ponds and lakes to enjoy this highlight of the shooting calendar.
During last year’s duck shooting season, there were five reported non-intentional firearms incidents resulting shotgun injuries which ranges from relatively minor to quite serious.
“All five of these incidents could have been avoided,” said Mike Spray, Firearms and Hunter Training Program Manager for the New Zealand Mountain Safety Council.
