    well got to shoot some photos when we banded ducks at yellow bank last week. hope y'all enjoy. they did not turn out as good as I had hoped I believe shutter speed was just a touch slow.

    anyways a few pics of the trap notice it has a runway up on to land that we herd them into. then we pull them out band them and turn them loose pretty simple process.

    Those are amazing photos. The colors in a duck are brilliant. Thanks for sharing.

    Looks like its pretty close to the shop. I would have thought it was a little further east.
     
  6. Nice pics, how does the trap work?

    Trap works similar to a minnow trap. Funnels on each end and when everything froze this is the only open water. Then a platform with corn in the middle. They push each other into the funnels and can't find their way out.

    Yes we released them at the shop. Capture spot was actually northwest of the shop. We put them on a trailer and banded and released at the shop.

    I am not far from there if they ever need an extra set of hands. It looks like an interesting thing to do this time of year when nothing else is going on.
