I wanted to start a thread to see where most of the birds were banded that are taken in WV, I got 2 banded mallards this past weekend & sparked my curiousity. I have waterfowl hunted for 15 years & until last year had never seen a banded duck. Geese on the otherhand It seemed I killed more early on in my career but I still take a couple each year.
3 banded ducks (2 mallards & one black duck) all three Linesville, PA
Prolly 30 banded geese (that were taken by me or my party) & all came from the county where we were hunting or a surrounding county (Lewis, Harrison, Braxton, & Upshur)
The goose stat is interesting to me as I question if we get many migrating geese.
