I am not the type of guy to say, "I got that one." Growing up, it was always a rule with dad and grandpa that the band stayed with the dog. I have 9, dad has at least a dozen, and grandpa has a lanyard full. I got a cousin that has zero, and been thinking no matter what, he gets the next. Gonna do that regardless, but what rule do you guys have moving forward. Not talking about obvious kills, but on retrieves when multiples are belly up, how do u distinguish who goes home with it? I see when I hit a bird, but I don't follow it to the water. That's the dogs job while I kill another. Lol

Opening weekend we had a group of Pintail come in right after legal, we shot 5 between 3 of us. My dog gathered all the birds and they were all mixed up by the time I noticed the band. We figured the only way to decide was to draw straws, or mangrove stems. Unfortunately I didn't win. I've read the stories on here about guys claiming bands because it was "their boat" or whatever other reasons and I didn't want to be that guy. If it's clear who shot it, the shooter should always get it, no matter what. If it's a group then I say pick a fair way to decide. Rock paper scissors, draw straws ect.

If its known who shot it they get it of course. If its not known, anyone that might have killed it but hasn't gotten one yet gets it. If its not known, and everyone that might have shot it already has a band then they draw straws.

If I shoot it, no way am I giving it to a dam dog that's for sure. If I have no idea if I killed it or not, I don't want the band. Never understood why a guy would keep a band that he didn't even kill.

I'm with 8point. I only want a band from a bird that I know I killed.

Flip a coin if it is just 2 people that think they killed it or if it is more than 2 people, put shotgun shells in a hat and either put a different color shell in or mark one with a sharpie or pen and whoever draws the odd shell gets the band.

Guiding early on, I shot a many a banded bird and had to pass it over to the client. I can't stand guiding, don't want to do it, never ever again. I still help out my guide friends when they get very busy and ask for help. It takes me right back to that place and I don't like it. I know which birds are shot by me. We call it as they lay on the water. So when it comes back each person will know who shot what. If it is on my bird, my band. If it is on another person's bird, their band. If all else fails, I got the keys to the boat or the truck in my pocket, swim your arse back to the docks and walk home from thereconfused2

It is true that we know when we killed a duck. It is not true that we know that nobody else did. If there is one shot, one kill, we know who killed the band. If there are two shots, two kills, and the band is discovered on the retrieve, we know who killed the band. We have all been in a situation where there are two hunters, two birds come in, and both shooters "double". Often, more than one shooter kills the same bird. Many times simultaneously.

Keeping the band because you own the dog or the boat makes you a band hog.

Toledo's solution seems the fairest.

That is why we establish who got what before we release the hound.

I agree with this. Like I said, I was not talking about obvious kills. Looking to far into it. I would like to use Wal's solution one time and tell someone in the group that they have to swim back!

I don;t get the draw straws thingy or the "Who killed that bird" theory. How do you not know who shot what? I can't tell you what I shot without question. If you are having to decide who got what, technically you could be illegal so far as your strap of birds. You are not allowed to give birds away in the field. Yall are a bunch of dern lawless wildmen.

I wonder how many texas boys have a lanyard full. The only lanyards I've seen in texas with more than mine is my dad and grandpa. Dad is 54 and grandpa is 81. I got a lot of years to be hard core if that is the case.

Willing to bet brazosboyt will hold his own with anybody on bands. He can teach a class on bands, collars, tracking chips etc..

Last shot on the bird gets the band. This is the reason I give even dead birds the ol' double tap.

Yea but the problem with that is when someone else swears they shot the bird after they find out it is banded. I am not gonna get in a pissing match over a band so I just tell whoever else thinks they hit it we can flip for it or draw straws. It has happened to me twice where someone else claimed the bird I killed after they found out it had a band. Luckily justice prevailed and I won both in a coin toss.
