    Post 'em up boys.

    if you'd like to share your band story and data, this is the place.

    No need to post specific location/ GPS coordinates - please don't!!!

    Nor do we need your recovered band number - Just a little blurb about your successful hunt, the species, where it was banded and age should suffice for everyone here.


    Good luck to everyone this season!

    Go these 2 on 9/10. Banded June 2016, too young to fly. Shot about 10 miles or less from where they were banded in West Michigan. Interesting thing was the numbers were not even close, they were several hundred numbers apart.

    Male. Shot Sept 24. Banded too young to fly on Akimski island, Nunavut in 2011. Been to Attawapiskat hunting across from the island and never got a band. Figures that I'd get one in Michigan.

    Hen mallard I took today. Banded in Cutlerville on July 21, 2016. Kent county to Ottawa county. Not much of a story behind it but very exciting nonetheless!
