I haven't been able to get on DHC recently with all the school work and hunting, but today I finally had some down time.
Last day of the RP season my buddy and I met up with Redlab fairly early. As we walked out we kicked a lot of birds up, got us a little nervous as to whether or not they would come back. But they did.. It was a great morning with some great friends. Always a pleasure hunting with Redlab and his dogs. We ended around noon. Had we shot better and maybe I would have made my soils class

The End results
Redlab got the band, I believe he said banded in 2007, in Ontario Canada. Thanks again Barry.
The start of my roommates and my spring break we decided to scout around home (Middle Creek) and see what the snow goose situation was like. It was okay, but with all the leases, ground pounders, and what not we weren't able to secure a great spot... So we picked up and headed to the coast. It was an awesome morning, working 1k birds into a spread feet down is a neat feeling. We whiffed on calling some of the shots but we ended with a good bit, and all in all just an fun experience.
Truck loaded down with as many silo socks as we had (and added 5 dozen to it on the way):
