Swamp Comp Results 2018

 

SWAMP COMP – 2018 WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Firstly, congratulations to all participants, there were so many of you this past year that you outnumbered the prizes so unfortunately some will miss out.  Please check out the list below.

Of course the real winners are the ducks and wetland species that benefit from the predator removal achieved by the event, therefore at this stage we are anticipating the Swamp Comp will run again for 2019.  Please keep up the good work, trapping ferrets, stoats and weasels, freezing the tails, ready for counting in November.

The final count in 2018 was 2040 tails, with exactly 200 entries received.  If those 2040 predators made even one kill per day over a year, this amounts to 744,600 birds, eggs etc, wiped from the environment. Even though we can’t include wild cats in the event, please keep on targeting them because Fish & Game research is pointing to cats being the major mallard predator.  Talk to professionals and they are quick to point out the strength of hedgehog jaws enable those critters to predate on large birds, and we all know eggs are on the menu for them and most of the other predators including rats.  The experts point out that when you take just one predator out of the food chain, another predator can benefit from the reduced competition, so by targeting a suite of predators (a cross section) you are doing the most good.  Pukeko’s have benefited from the increase in horticulture and small rural lifestyle blocks.  More and more evidence of them killing ducklings is coming to light so we suggest targeting them at times during the hunting season.  (There are some great Pukeko recipes or just breast them and add to your sausage mix.)  There is also legislation that makes it legal to remove hawks where they pose a threat to fully protected species such as bittern, dabchick, herons, grey teal etc.  If you spot hawks harassing these or any other fully protected wildlife in the wetland you protect, see DOC as a permit is required which can be obtained from your local DOC office.

All waterfowl and wetland enthusiasts owe you and our amazing sponsors a vote of thanks.  And if you support the concept of the event, but can’t participate, just be sure and purchase the sponsors products and brands as this will keep them firmly onboard.  Hunting & Fishing New Zealand, is the unsung hero in this event, with countless staff and voluntary hours devoted to arranging prizes, counting tails, shipping prizes, not to mention the admin involved with putting it all together.  Please keep supporting the retailer that puts back into the sport and environment we all love.

Now go check out if you have won something!!!

*Please note: The organisers reserve the right to supply alternative prizes, albeit of similar value, if the items received from the sponsors actually vary from what they originally pledged.
