I got 1168-92506 and 1168-92819 on 9/23/17 near Mackinaw City.
Wife and I teamed up on our first banded goose this morning
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.
Banded Mallard shot 11/5 in Branch County, hatched this spring in Ohio! Dang bird flew North instead of South!
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.
Woah. How many ducks:geese do you shoot per year would you say?
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.
Shot in Wabash County Indiana

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.
Congrats, way to go!!
We ended up with 3 bands this year. The first (mallard h)was shot opening day middle zone banded Houghton Lake August 2017. Second two were shot opening day Harsens. Drake Mallard and Wood Duck, both banded Harsens August 2017.
I got a double banded drake mallard on opening day in southern Zone.
Banded on 9/01/2007 in Linesville PA
Was hatched in 2006 or earlier
Encountered on 10/14/2017 in bay county
I haven’t heard back about the reward band yet.
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.
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.
