Where don't they band ducks and geese?

I hunt in eastern Ontario and have harvested banded ducks and geese from Ottawa, Cornwall, Ganonoque, James Bay etc.
I love to hunt....so why do I scout?
The more time I spend scouting....the less time I spend hunting!

Yeah, I too thought it was pretty widespread. I don't get many but the ones I do get seem to be from across the province,

Funny;

12 years hunting waterfowl and never collected a band. It almost hurts the write it. I wonder if they band, as much, as they used to.

I'm thinking a big fat early season honker. There seem to be quite a few of them that are banded now.

Jack Miners in Kingsville was the originator of the Band, They start banding early Sept to freeze up. They used to band more geese than ducks now it's the opposite. They even band teal and Woodies. They go a big trap they feed under with a chain link roof then when they have a number of birds under the roof they pull a lever from a blind and the walls slide down. Often they have volunteers and a couple kids from Jack Miner Public school ( just down the road) come and band. Miner bands are common down in Essex County Canada and Northern Ohio
