I killed my first ever banded duck this morning. A beautiful Wood Duck that was banded on September 7, 2010 in Iowa. Shot near Maypearl, Texas. A hunt that I will always remember!

I reckon you'll have to hunt me down then.... I'm a poor college boy, and cannot afford to mount him. I got lots of good pictures and am going to blow up the best one in a frame, along with the band and certificate. One day I'll get a nice one mounted, but till then I'll have an awesome memory and a nicely framed memoir of how poor I once was lol. Thanks for the kind words!

Fair enough. And, that way, you don't sacrifice the breast meat.

Congrats!

Congratulations, I'm still waiting on my first one.

You have to be careful with those rings on your woody. They can hurt. So I hear.

I Killed one last year. It was banded in Valders, WI.

I got one on a dove a few years ago- I didn't even know they banded doves. Little tiny band. I put mine on my key chain. Nice wood duck!
