Was invited by my insurance agent to dove hunt last week. Thursday morning I walked over to retrieve a dove I had knocked down and noticed it had on some jewelry. Never shot a banded bird of any kind. What was truly amazing was my insurance agent shot another banded dove that same morning in the same field. Haven’t had a chance to report it yet.

I reported it and got the information back on the bird. It was a local bird banded in the same county, Shackleford, where I shot it. It was banded 7/29/19 and estimated to be hatched in 2018 or earlier.

A couple years ago I was white wing hunting in Lyford Texas and killed one. It was a bird tagged in Lyford the same year I shot it. Several have been killed with bands down there on the property that I hunt

Real cool, congrats! My buddy shot someone’s homing pigeon once and it had bands on it... but not the kind you got. LOL. As for me, I got lucky years ago and knocked down a mallard drake with some bling on it. It was banded in South Dakota.
