Take hunting mallards on large shallow coastal wetlands, add a wild Canada goose chase around braided high country riverbeds and throw in a little upland game upon briar-rose strewn Central Otago hills for good measure. Mix well for a season that can last for 11 months (if you're a dedicated goose chaser) and you have Otago Region's veritable smorgasbord of game bird hunting.
Of course there is pond and riverbank hunting, small stream stalking and evening shooting over grain crops as well. Otago pretty much has it all when it comes to game bird hunting opportunity, all you have to do is get a licence and get out there.
