well i have had pretty good luck with bands up here in the gallatin valley this year i have shot six geese with bands and one neck collar and i already have 14 duck bands from this year i guess its just the luck of the flocks[/quote]
LUCK? LUCK? 20 bands in ONE year is not just LUCK, it is like winning the lottery
Do you mind me asking how many birds you've shot this year to get all those bands? Must be a great many, otherwise you have some amazing eyesight and are a heck of a good shot :toofunny:
I've shot 75 ducks and 22 geese so far this year and I've only taken one band. In fact, I've seen 75+ geese and 250+ ducks on the ground and the only band I've seen has been mine!
Where are all those birds from? Are any of them locally banded?
