    Shot a banded drake mallard Friday November 3rd. Banded in Pain Court On. in 2015 as an adult. Shot on Saginaw Bay. According to map quest it is 159 miles from where it was banded. Someone is gonna be bummed because it had been shot before and flew off. He made a big mistake coming into my spread, because he didn't make it out. My dogg made a great retrieve on it so it was a perfect day. First band of the year. Been running a 1 band per year the last few years. Brings my total band count to 63. That is for a 44 year waterfowl run.

    First duck band today. Seems like a pretty old bird and a long way from home. This duck is going on the wall

    I took this one off mother Erie. Banded this year as a juvenile outside Toledo. Not much data gathered but he’s still a prize.

    Shot a banded drake mallard in Ottawa County today (11/30), banded 8/15/17 as a juvenile near Cutlerville in Kent County. Same banding location as my mallard hen from last year. I figure it flew 25 or so miles. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1512061823.990172.jpg

    After 29 years I finally got my first mallard band. Actually the first one I've seen shot. Popped with my 20 feet down at Shiawassee. Banded in Hebron, Wisconsin in 2008. Wonder how many spreads he's seen and then we get him right before season ends at 15 yards.

    I forgot about this thread. I’ll add a few more.

    Had an awesome 2 day mallard shoot and shot 44 mallards and 4 bands out of the same field. All banded in Michigan. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1513948977.386227.jpg ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1513948996.389208.jpg

    This was a quick little fun hunt a buddy and I did before work. 2 banded mallards from the same flock both from Michigan banded at the same place a couple months apart.

    Think we ended up with 10 or 12 goose bands ranging from Michigan to northern Canada. Only took one lousy pic of a goose band. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1513949264.670151.jpg
