Yup...just luck and some help from the Big Guy upstairs. And I'll take both any day of the week over thinking that skillz are the reason that I killed a band.

I admit it's a lot of luck but it helps when I can see the band before the shot via close distance

Nice and congrats. Was this band pretty new? Not trying to ask for any key info, just wondering because it's weird that it has green lettering. My buddy shot one last yr with orange lettering and his was only a yr old. Also, maybe someone on here knows if that's something new they are doing or if they have always had coloring in the bands? I've never killed one with green numbering or orange numbering or had any coloring at all. Again congrats on the band, always a nice surprise when the pooch brings back a little jewelry.

BFM, funny thing you mention that. I looked really hard at this bird's legs before I shot him but didn't see a band. I didn't see it until after I got the dog back on her stand and took the bird from her.

Flashman, it was banded 9/9/2013. You can tell that the whole band was green at one time, but it was almost all worn out except for inside the numbers/letters. This is the first colored band I have seen(other than pictures of money bands) but I've talked to a few folks recently that have killed some bands like this before. They're new to me too.

Seems Mr Mike Blenden (bander) has had his hands all over our birds.

What happened to jrabq post...LOL!

The bands are all painted at first, well most of them , the paint just normally wears off, i use to intern at Bosque and would help do net shots where we would band them and there we had yellow paint on the bands inside the numbers/letters and the rest was grey, but sometimes we also just put regular bands on, you need to check it because usually the colored bands are for rewards to help promote the turn in of banded birds so they can track them. Green is usaully like $25 or $10 red has a range of like $50-75. or something like that. But congrats man nice to somebody killing something especially with jewels on it.

My brother shot this one with the green money band on it when he was hunting with me back in 2008. It was worth $50, but he said it took a long time before they sent him the check. Only one I've ever seen. I looks like some type of green anodization, it's not paint. I don't remember exactly what it said, but it was obvious there was a reward.

To the best of my knowledge, all money bands are anodized(not painted) and the bird is double banded. I'm pretty positive that 2008 was the last year that any birds were banded with money bands.

I don't think that you send the band itself in. I'm pretty sure it's just an incentive to report the band.
