I have shot banded mallards, wood ducks, pintail, teal, black ducks, canvasback, and gadwall......so if I were to hazard a guess, I think they have banded every species of duck you can think about........although I could be totally wrong....

I know of several species that have been banded and Im sure they band them all. They band all sorts of birds from Hummingbirds to pelicans.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Duck Hunting is ALL about the bag.

Around here, they bait them, then shoot a big net out. I have seen the places they do it, right near my house. So if they do it this way, i would think they band any duck that they net.

No...They dont band any duck they net. The USFWS has a pre-determined ammount of birds that they will band each year (all differenct species and for both sex)

Mallard
American Black Duck
Wood Duck
American Green-Winged Teal
Blue-Wing Teal
Dabbler Ducks
Diver Ducks

More than 200,000 ducks, 100,000 geese and 1,000 swans are banded each year in North America, primarily on breeding areas. Banding crews generally target a particular species but will band other waterfowl that may be caught at the same time. For example, most prairie banding crews target mallards but also band significant numbers of other dabbling ducks. (info from DU)
Everyone must believe in something and I believe I'll go hunting. When men bond something must die.

No, completely wild. Our camp if you notice is completly surronded by a fence to get those sorts of charcters out. We had lots of polar bears come and visit the fence. I even touched one through the fence.
