08/09 Season "Waterfowl Jewelry"
« on: February 02, 2009, 08:55:20 PM »
I just wanted to see how many were able to get banded birds this season.  I attached a few pics from this season.  If you have any pics from this year throw them on.

No pics but I killed a drake mallard just after Christmas that was banded in July 1997 in Alberta.  I almost felt bad killing him after I had found out he had made 12 trips south when I whacked him.  His legend will live on hanging from my lanyard.

I only have a pic on my cell phone and no way of transfering to the computer? But my only band this year came on the first shot of Opening day- a lessor Canada, banded just outside of Kotzebue Alaska, July of last year.
Winter is coming.

Nice teal band.  I don't see to many banded ones. We shot several banded teal one year and that was it.
Cut em!

Interesting.....seeing the gal with her first goose, which was banded and the Green Winged Teal which was banded, reminds me of the first duck I ever shot back in the 60's .......a Green Winged Teal.....yep....wouldn't you know.... was banded.
Had it mounted and it lasted alot of years only to finally succumb to several moves, kids growing up and  hunting dogs who joined the family as puppies.
Still have the band though on my dog whistle laynard.   :chuckle:

They really need to keep track of their migration...from one side of the pond to the other, back to the other, back to the other.

I'm sure they are funded by our tax dollars....

I sure hope hunters don't shoot high numbers of birds just for the intent on retrieving more bands  :(

If a daily limit of 7 ducks and 4 geese is a high number, then I am probably guilty.  :dunno:

On another note I think they band a certain amount of all migratory birds.  I talked to an old timer that found a band on a robins leg that had flew into his family room window.
Cut em!

I think he is saying that if youre going to shoot coots just to get a band, it isnt right? I mean you cant tell me youre going to eat one of those things...or are you?? Just my thought on what was said.

Kind of like trophy hunting.. In it for horns instead of the meat.
