Bands

Postby dukhnter7 » Mon Jan 31, 2005 8:11 pm

We hunt geese around here pretty hard and over the last several years, our group has only gotten 1 band. Well, the other day, my buddy went out and dropped 3 geese on 2 shots and all 3 were banded. As soon as he left the field, he went and bought a lotto ticket! :salude:

The numbers were fairly close (within a couple hundred) but not consecutive.

Bands are a bonus and last year I finally got a band a week later got my second. We have tons of bands on the geese here in Connecticut and all my friends have a bunch though I kill more birds than they its getting the right birds.

We've killed 46 geese over the past four days. Funny thing is 19 of em were banded. I think it might be a national thing, but I know Tennessee for sure banded 600 birds here two months ago just so they could try to track how many resident geese we have. Now their hoping everyone that killed bands will call them in so they can do the math. I was told yesterday by a federal GW they suspected 98% of the birds we were killing where locals. I killed my first banded goose Friday, my second Saturday, then my third and fourth Sunday.

I hope you folks are reporting those banded birds. The info helps wildlife managers. You can report online, and about 2 weeks later-maybe more in hunting season-you get a letter saying when, where the bird was banded, sex, and age.

To report online go to:

band between buddies

Postby pyle30 » Tue Oct 11, 2005 7:44 pm

well i was out with 3 of my buddies sunday morning in my buddies boat and this being my 2nd year of waterfowl hunting. i had shot my first 2 canadians just 2 weeks earlier and non were banded then satraday morning we were hunting and another boat shot a bird that landed about 200 yards from our boat and thay didnt know it was down. so after thay pulled out early i got out of the boat and waded out to the goose. when i picked it up i noticed that it was banded and i was really excited. when i got back to the boat my buddy jeremy whos boat we were in asked me if it was bannded and i told him yes and he told me to give it to him. he said "my boat my band." i got so pissed of and then when we got back to town i had to be to work in 15 minutes so i told him to take my bird and i would get one from him some other time. i talked to him at football practice and asked him for my band and now he wont give it to me. i was wondering what all you guys thought of this move by my buddy. give me some feed back.
Without hunting the fall and winter would just be football.

pyle let him keep that that is probably the cheapest way to get a band I'd want nothing to do with it, nor will I ever take a band that off a bird someone else shot at

thanks man i mean if the guys that had shot the bird would have been back at the boat ramp i would have totally gave them the bird but they had no idea it dropped and i didnt want to waste the bird. i am gonna let him keep it because i really want to earn my first band.
