South Island duck hunters are advised to claim their maimai (hide) before it is too late.

The Fish & Game organisation says regulations require hunters to claim their favourite spot before 10am on Sunday.

The duck shooting season opens on 4 May and runs until 28 July.

Fish & Game is also reminding hunters to avoid mixing guns and alcohol.
