“Despite hunters being frustrated by the 8:00am start for the first 4 days and the 4 bird per day bag limit, it is good to see that the season is going ahead*.”
He continued, “Although this duck season has been modified in accordance with the Game Management Authority findings, it is important that this legitimate sport continues.
“I encourage those taking part in this years 2022 to be responsible and safe when it comes to participating in this years duck season.”
