Goose travels a long distance to be taken by youth hunter

Postby Ohio Wildfowler » Sun Oct 05, 2008 4:52 pm

Guys ,I took a hunting buddy and his son out for youth season on Saturday and although the ducks didn't cooperate I did manage to get him his first waterfowl kill on a banded canada goose. When we put the band in on the website we got the information back below. He also got another unbanded goose for his second ever kill !!! I have deleted the addrees for ovious reasons.

Youuth Duck was also very good to us. My 14 year old son harvested two blue winged and one green winged teal opening day and on Sunday he harvested his first goose with jewelery on the second day.

I aplaud the DNR on their addition of Youth Hunting Seasons. The kids now get to know how good hunting can be.

I'll post info from the band later today.

Our Goose did not travel very far. The band came back as being banded in Ohio in 2006 and it was the Greater Canada Goose.

I believe that these are the local birds and not the Canada Bay Geese that migrate through.

Still the time with spent with my boys was outstanding.

thats awesome. Especially for a youth. The strangest band that I have gotten was a drake shot in october '99 in jefferson county that was banded in august of '98 in meota, sask. by a wildlife officer from portland, Oregon. That wass a long way throught the yearly migration in a little over 1 year and 1 month.
