On my last trip to New Zealand I was lucky enough to take some extra time after my hunt to visit with my friends Peg and Chris of Track and Trail Safaris. I shot my Himalayan tahr with Chris about five years ago and I have been promising to come back and visit ever since. One evening before dinner we took the newest member of their team (an adorable chocolate lab) out to practice on some ducks! Cadbury is only a year old and is getting the hang of things but still kind of wants to eat the birds… who can blame her! The birds don’t start flying in this area until right before dark making them very difficult to see. We were looking for a set of paradise ducks but didn’t get any, at least the dogs had a good outing, and they chased a few birds and got to swim in the ponds. Oh well better luck next time!
