Saturday 12/11/04 Report

Postby puddleduck » Sat Dec 11, 2004 5:08 pm

Hunted south pond in warren today. bunch of birds mainly mallard and geese a few blacks. bird decoyed fairly well this morning. We ended the day with 5 mallards (4 drakes and 1 hen ) and 4 geese. Also I've been hunting waterfowl since I've been 10 years old (30 years now) and have shot tons of birds but never a banded bird until this morning. One of the geese I shot was banded which made for a pretty good day.

Congrats on the band!! My brother shot a banded Hen Eider last season and reported it via the internet. The feds then e-mailed him back a bunch of information on the bird. . . was really cool.

I have NEVER shot a banded bird!
