First band of 2012-13 season!!!!!!!! I got one single lesser out of a flock of about 14 that circle a little too close!!! The bird is a female banded in Manitoba at Owl River in 2004. That made it worth laying in a blind in 20 degree weather from 6:45 to 4:48 this after noon!!!!!
bulletman, Thanks! It was either hunt all day or take down Christmas lights!!! Plus I usually get a few good naps in snuggled up in my layout blind!!! I take a couple old Army blankets to wrap up in stay toasty warm. Anything is better than being stuck inside all winter (LOL).
