We have 18 species of water fowl which can be hunted. Most have specific seasons in which they can be hunted and some are area specific. Much of these species are hunted with dog to aid recovery .

We have 22 species of game birds that may be hunted. Here again most have specific seasons and conditions under which they can be hunted. Many of them are area specific too. Game birds are also hunted over dogs to ensure efficient recovery.

Double barrelled guns are preferred to pumps or autos. In some areas land owners and or the law will not permit autos. The preferred calibres for which ammunition is easily available are 12 and 20 gauges. Guns can be hired if prior arrangements are made and ammunition provided at the shooters cost .

The general bird season is March to August.
