That's awesome! Pretty rare to shoot a banded spoony! In 2011 I banded pintail on the Sac Complex, and since we were catching other ducks in our rocket nets as well, we banded 25-ish Northern shovelers and 30-ish green wing teal.

I know pretty rare im still stoked thats number 8 for the lanyard.shot a red head last year and the band was so worn out that i could only get 4 numbers off of it.This morning i gave it to a freind that works at the local police station he said that he will do a CSI on it to get the rest of the numbers.Cant wait i will post it here got to be real old! Can you volunteer for that banding program that sounds like fun.

That was when I worked for the California Department of Fish and Game. We banded around 980 pintail there that year in September and October. Not sure if the USFWS does any volunteer stuff with their own banding program or not.

Hen Mallard banded in 2010 at Whitman Lumber Yard near Coeur d'Alene Idaho. harvested in Lake Co. Oregon 2014. We finally got an influx of new migrators this last week and today was the last day of duck season. :crying: Good hunts to all you Cal hunters and youth hunters the next couple weeks.

Shot a banded drake Cinnamon Teal out of blind 5 at Delevan on Saturday. It was banded in early July at Sacramento. So it's spent the last 6 months in that area. It was hatched 2012 or earlier

I'm really curious as to what people think is the ratio for shooting banded birds versus non-jewelry birds. I know it really has a lot to do with where you are hunting and what types of birds you are shooting, but for those of you who have hunted for 10, 20, or 30+ seasons, what do you think the ratio is? I've only been hunting for 5 or 6 seasons and have probably shot about 300 birds without ever finding a band. I've shot a fair amount of every type of goose and duck. So what do you think a very generalized ratio would be for banded birds to non-banded. I would guess something like 1:500.

I just think it varies... I know guys who have hunted for 20+ years without getting a band. Not that it matters, the birds taste the same without them. I think it is a variable of location + luck + perseverance. I've been Fairly lucky having 2 goose bands within the last 15 geese I've shot. But haven't killed a duck band in years. But have had 2 duck bands taken by buddies who I was hunting with the past two years.

Thanks! :beer:
As for a ratio, I have no idea. All I do know is it as all about pure luck. I am now 20 and have been hunting since I was ten and have shot three or four (1 band is still arguable about who shot it between me and my brother). My dad however who has been hunting for lets say close to 30 seasons has only shot three in his life. My younger brother who is on his third or fourth season has still yet to shoot one. So it is all just pure luck. some are lucky and some are not. I have been fortunate I have shot a band two seasons in a row.

My dads 58 and has been duck hunting since he was 12 and has shot ZERO bands. Im 19 been hunting since I was 11 and have shot 2 banded birds. Both in the same season and exactly 30 days appart from each other. One was a green head banded in sac estimated to be 9 years or older and the 2nd was a greenwing teal banded in cumberland canada and was to young to fly so he was only 1 year old when I shot him.
