Keeping it simple is great but everyone knows ducks dont always fly straight. If your the guy that doesnt mind giving birds away then I guess you dont like jewelry to much. I like the idea. It would help keep us honest.

I once shot a banded mallard which my brother in law promptly claimed. Since the bird flew between us, we agreed to clean it and see which side it had been shot from to settle the matter. You guessed it......hit entirely from my side....and he still whined that he killed it!
I love to hunt....so why do I scout?
The more time I spend scouting....the less time I spend hunting!
One of my old hunting buddies claimed just about every bird he shot at. It didn't matter if the bird fell dead right after me or someone else clearly shot it. ---I was able to prove him wrong several times on film though,very satisfying! If this idea actually works I would like to hear about it to prevent him from claiming birds that he obviously didn't shoot!
Sounds like a neat idea for those who like braggin rights.
I just don't care either way who shoots what.We all claim we shot all the birds! Unless a warden asks, of course.
Maybe I'll spread out my shot on a newspaper & paint it before I load it-NOT.
I hunt.....because the voices in my head tell me to.
I always share the bounty. If I shoot more than a partner, then I'll offer him half the birds regardless. If he doesn't want them - then I've got more for the table. If he does, then less to clean. Either way, its a good problem to have!
I had a few buddies who like to claim every bird... its not really a big deal to me but i know when i shoot a bird so what i did was went along like never and a few times i would say take em and not pull the trigger hahahahah... what do u know... no birds fell not saying thats the case everytime but i proved a point and it was free!!!!!!!!
