Postby duckaholic_16p » Mon Sep 18, 2006 5:55 am

How did everyone do early season? we killed 21 and 2 birds were banded. The first bird my buddy killed had 2 bands one was a $30 reward band, the second and was so old its turned brown and you can barely read the #'s. One side of it was worn paper thin. it didnt have the phone # to call in just the address to write too. Anyone know when they started printing the phone # on bands?

First off congrats on your bands!!!

Second you can send the band in and they will get the numbers off there for you with some kind of liquid they use. They can get you all the information on the bird

We killed 35 birds total

22 geese
13 teal
no bands!!!

Let me know if you send that band is and how old it was
