Doing ducks a kindness

Duck shooting opens today.

All over the country a lot of blokes, and some blokesses, have been preparing for this day for weeks – building and provisioning mai mais.

SAFE calls it the season of suffering but Eric Roy reckons it’s an act of kindness.

Hunters kill 20.6% of ducks, the greatest killer is starvation so hunting  saves ducks from a fate worse than death.

Duck shooting might also be good for the environment.

The regional council has been monitoring water and found an E. Coli problem in a stream leaving one farm. It had nothing to do with the stock on the farm – the culprits were the ducks on a dam.
