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.
