The 2020 duck-shooting season is finally underway.
Usually the seasons starts on the 1st May, but this year it has been postponed until now.
One of the major concerns was the availability of ammunition. Stocks around the country had been running low because of the two-week delay caused by Covid-19 restrictions as well as uncertainty around if the season would go ahead.
So far there haven’t been any reports of accidents involving duck hunters and hunters were being reminded to put safety first.
Mountain Safety Council say that about 45 percent of reported incidents happened in the first two days of the season.
