Banded Birds in the International Lands?

Postby duckman27 » Sun Oct 07, 2012 11:36 pm

I was sitting around thinking today and was wondering if any of y'all have ever killed banded birds in other countries that are not bordered by the US?

Yes, Iceland, both Icelandic bands and U.K. bands and New Zealand. Also a friend killed a banded bird in Argentina from Brazil.

Ducks have not been banded in Aust. for years.Back in the 60s and 70s Govt used to run lucky draws on returned bands to win a case of cartridges.Last one I shot with a band was the late 70s.Not much game research goes on here.Have taken a few goose bands since then.We finally get our regulations changed next year to allow international visitors to hunt without having to do our waterfowl I.D.test as long as they hunt with a hunter who has passed the test .The international visitors permit will be issued for 2 weeks. Makes it a bit easier for overseas hunters.

Sloe, interesting. Wish it was possible to get birds out without the hassle. Want to hunt there some day.

You can get the birds home but they need to be skun and shipped by a taxidermist with a lic.to export,but uf course there is a cost involved.
