DUCK SHOOTING AT LAKE ELLESMERE.
TO THE EDITOR
The following conespondenca in the "Press," Christchurch, is of interest:—
Sir, —Some months ago we saw by the papers that the Acclimatisation Society had appointed a sub-committee to endeavour to get the Act altered so that duoks could be shot from oyclinders in Lake Ellesmere. Myself, with many otbes, have been waiting for some result from this committee, but so far no word has been published Wben we saw the names of that oommitted aud recognised several old duck hunters that understood the ; ame, we certainly looked for good results, but like all things of interest to shooters, I suppose the matter has been shelved. This is a matter that ought to be put right, and we want the Society to do it for us as the shooters' representatives, but it th'jy are not going to do s", then,the shooters must move for themselves and soon. Wo trust this letter will arouse fresh interest in the matter, and that the Society will favour us with some information as to what is being done. I write in the plural, as lam writing on behalf of a number of shooters who wish to have some information on this, to us, important question.—Yours, etc,...
