    900 ducks...that's impossible all the ducks went south of us in November:highly_amused:
    I;m kidding of course, that's pretty good. What part of the state?
    I got this a few weeks ago, don't know how to check on it since all the numbers are gone.

    Shot two pigeons on Gene Snyder, both had Mike Tyson Racing pigeon bands. Pretty pumped, now we are eating squabs for dinner over quinoa and wild rice. Hope Iron Mike understands.

    Its my 11th and I have never shot a banded bird either. In fact until this season I had never even been on a hunt where a band was shot. As many geese as we shoot, it kinda suprises me we dont get bands every now and then.

    I probably hunted for 10-12 years before ever killing a banded duck. Since I have five duck bands and three geese. I have not killed a banded bird in probably 7-8 years..

    I think this my 18th season have 6 goose bands 1 duck band. I don't hunt near as much as I use too. We shot one double banded goose last year and I got one in ind. last year. With ducks I have no idea but geese some locations are way better than others. I doubt I will see another duck band.

    I have 30 or so mostly geese. Hunt a lot you'll get em, been very lucky from specks to snows to transmitters to collars.
    Not the 1st local banded bird (still trying) 3 days ago got one from Michigan.
