Randy I think you misunderstood......they found a New Mexican with pigtails....not a New Mexican Pintail...and those bands were handcuffs!!! Sounds like a fish story. Which by the way I cought the state record trout today and released it!! :biggrin:

About six or eight years ago there were several hen pintails w/transmitters and antennas using the valley that you could track on the internet. I heard about the banding there at Bosque. If thats true
about the Japan thing then thats pretty crazy. Let us know if you
find out more about that.
