2 of us got seven today. We should have had more but someone set up about 80 yards from us 20 minutes before shooting time.
Although we ended up getting more than they did, we would have probably limited out.

The bird was banded by Bill Greenshaw last summer in Rutland area. Kind of wonder why it was in Hinesburg though?

my hunting partner shot a band last sept from somewhere south near the ocean so I would think its possible you could shoot birds banded from down south. cant remember where he said it was from.

Sure they do.....not on every band report, but on alot of them. I have killed 65 banded ducks and geese and about half of the reports have something like "Approx. 11 N Higate Sprs VT" or "Approx. 7 W Trois Pistols QC" The last banded mallard I shot even had the GPS coordinates on the COA, along with the miles/direction from the nearest town. Any way I was just curious as I had never heard of them banding around here.

This was the bird shot in hinesburg on the opener.
The bird was too young to fly it said
3.5 MILES N OF DANBY, RUTLAND COUNTY, VERMONT, USA (COORDINATES: LAT:
43.39611; LON: -72.99833 )

Shot another banded bird in mallets bay friday that was banded in Rutland county. But have not gotten my certificate yet that said where is was banded exactly.

I have been going to web site reportbanding.com or something like that and you get the info faster.

seems like you guys are hitting them good. I have only been out one day due to a knee injury. I hope by the end of the week I can get out again and start racking up the numbers.

I've never received the band info remotely that fast, in fact, I've waited several months for most that I've submitted. Maybe they've tightened-up their reporting/response process?

Four VT hunts thus far have yielded (17) geese, and two days of hunting the St. Lawrence yielded (10) canada/lesser's. It does seem that after a "hot" start the VT birds are responding to the pressure by avoiding the fields and hiding-out, at least to the extent that I've been able to scout for them. Maybe it's time to switch over to the water spread...?
