Waterfowl hunting in warm weather demands a system that can stand up to the conditions up and down the flyways. The Early Season Marsh system is designed with fabrics that deliver superior breathability and ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable in the blind.
SITKA Waterfowl Systems feature GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment Waterfowl Marsh and Waterfowl Timber, the only waterfowl patterns scientifically engineered to confuse the vision of descending ducks and geese to maximize stealth in the blind, boat, timber or field.
While better known for big game hunting, New Zealand offers some great waterfowl opportunities, including several indigenous species sure to intrigue avid bird collectors looking for a new adventure.
Endemic species hunted in New Zealand are Paradise Shelducks, Pacific Blackducks, and Australian Shovelers. Black Swans, Mallards, and Canada Geese make up the majority of bag limits. What separates New Zealand waterfowl hunting is the sedentary nature of the birds. Unlike other migratory waterfowl species, New Zealand waterfowl do not range outside the small country. This can provide unique challenges. Birds become stale more often, and hunting pressure has a much larger impact throughout the course of a season.
