Just a question, never been a duck or goose hunter, just don’t care for the meat. How old do geese and ducks live so they are leaders for the southern migration ????

not sure but I have a banded wood duck drake that according to the info from the tag was banded 7 years before I got him. Know of one Greater Canada goose that was banded 20 years before it was harvested.

there have been several bands reported that were in the upper 20's and a few low 30's (years ago banded)
not common at all but they can live a long time.

growing up my granddad had 2 pair of mallards that he bought when I was about 2 years old. they lived on a pond that was 20 yards from his house. I hunted that pond well into my 20's and the 2 drakes were still there. Don't hunt there anymore because my grandad passed away and his wife sold the place but those birds were at least 25 years old.
