got my first band today ! :grooving: ive been hunting for 4 years now and i finally got a bird with some jewelery on it. its a 2012 jack miner band, it doesnt have a phone number to call on it the band says please write jack miners. we shoot lots of geese where i hunt but we never get any bands. jack miners is about 45 km away from where i live and hunt. ive heard of some guys haveing 4, 5, 6 band days out in kingsville where jack miners is. luckey guys. but im happy i finally got mine :smile: i grabbed the bird out of the water and it immediatley smacked me in the face with its wing so i neglected to check it for a band. i got back to the boat continued to hunt, 15 minutes later my brother says hey man look at that goose you shot, i look over at a leg sticking up with a big ol band on it haha.

That is definately a trophy! I have quite a few bands and I would give them all back for one chance to take a jack minor band.

i should probably have more than one cause the bird in in an obvious famiyl flock of ten, all young birds, i only managed to drop one with three shots, it was windys as hell and i think they were still moving faster than i thought lol. a friend of mine and some of his buddies drop 5 out of a flock of 6 this year in early season and 5 out of 6 had jack miner bands.

Congrats! That's awesome. I have only seen one maybe two Jack Miner bands in my life. My buddy has killed one for sure up in Canada.



First bands are always special. Have a great season!
