Help ID this band

Postby bflow08 » Wed Jan 05, 2011 11:29 am

i recently shot a mallard drake in indiana it had a blue zip tie band on its left leg, no numbers. the tie wasnt cut at the end it looked as if it was made for a bird and not your normal zip tie length. i cant find any info and the feds say its not theirs, anyone eles heard of this?

good point... me and some buddys figured i killed some family pet and it was sold at a local farm store... ethier that or was being raised at a farm for meat and it got lucky enough to get away... ethier way its gonna be a nice addition to the bands on the lanyerd and the only blue plastic zip tie one with an interesting story.... meaningless but quite rare
