I took my pals out for the opener to a cut corn field saturday, set up by 7:30,left by 9:00,racing bud to the left,nieghbor to the right,13 came in,the instant the shooting stoped all I herd from the right was that bird has somthing on its neck,I looked to my left and said to shane what about yours?he replies what do you meen?I said go get your birds,50 yards later hes jumping up and down yelling you da man,you da man,John screaming I dont believe it,unreal,this is the best hunt ever!!2nd year for both,I didnt get any jewlery but the looks on thier faces was worth a million collars,besides I have an orange one,white one and a green one with a radio recevier on it so I cant complain to much.The best part is they both wear glasses so I told them to keep thier faces in the elimtnators till I said killem,I saw the collar to my far right and prayed john would to,he never saw it and ended up getting it anyways,I was keyed on my birds and shot first,I saw Shanes falling with an orange streak so I knew what was up,day 2, just John and I, ended up with 3,no jewlery.

Yes the collars where only a few off,z404&z401 if I remember rite.Mike Ive got to the point where I dont see anything but feet,the shiney foot gets it first,when I shot my collars I didnt see the white one till I was walking up to it,then I still thought it got hung up on some trash or something, It was with in 10 feet befor I relised what it was,the orange I saw coming in and the green one I had seen and took 4 days to pattern to get.They said the green one was done in lk.orion and went to the n.w.hudson bay to molt,then to ohio,back to lk.orion to a cut wheat field to meet me,birds love me!!!lucky enough to get a Jack miner band,#93035.The first bird I ever shot feel to a 1100,2 3/4 and had a band,now you say your shooting a 2 3/4 inch sheel and people laugh,I now shoot sp,10 or 1187.
