Replacement Bands

Postby Cougar125 » Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:50 am

Shot a banded harli today that is going on the wall. The numbers on the band are hard to read and he had a tarsal band on which is about to fall off. Research told me what the tarsal band read, so I was wondering if anybody could tell me if/where I could order a replacement.

Got nothing for you. What is the percentage of banded harlequin in Washington? I know they have quite an extensive operation up there, but I see so many banded I was just curious?

I've got no clue Pete on percentages. This guy was banded August 20, 2004 in Glacier National Park.

X2 on the 870... Congrats in the banded harli. I'm jealous of the harlequin for sure. :thumbsup:

Personal opinion, I would leave the original band on the mount. Shows the history of wear during the birds life.

If you are looking for a replacement plastic band look up Spinner Plastics. They make all sorts of axillary bands for waterfowl.
