Never shot a banded anything either. DUKFVR that's pretty cool, do you have a collection of duck bands also?

Anyone know where they do the banding? I assume they have several sites through out the state.

I always check right before cleaning the birds, but none so far!

I have shot plenty of birds but only recently I have started looking for bands. I like think I would have noticed a band but I am sure that some have been missed.

Have shot a banded pigeon but never a duck or dove. Have been on a hunt at our place in Cass county when a banded mallard was shot.


See y’all around the campfire.

Ever shot a double banded duck or goose?

Shot a banded snow goose that was an adult bird when it was banded in 2008. Thought about all the spreads it saw in that time, pretty cool. Also have a banded redhead and woodduck.

I have shot 2 neck collared ross geese that of course had leg bands too. Killed 1 ross that had a reward band along with normal band. 1 blue had a normal band & plastic tarsal band on other leg. Oldest bird was a blue that was at least 20 yrs old by their data.

The primary reason we band is to track harvest. It’s how we come up with an abundance estimate and ultimately how we track population changes and set regulations

I shot a banded mourning dove in South Texas that was banded on the neighboring ranch (Chaparral WMA) woohoo and when I guided in the panhandle we had quite a few clients shoot banded white wings outside Lubbock that were, of course, banded in Lubbock.

Shooting up the locals. I wonder how many different locations they were banded in.

TPWD traps and banded lots in my uncles yard in El Campo for a couple years because his feeders were always covered up. He ended up shooting one that had been banded in his yard.....

I've never killed a banded bird but I did catch a tagged salmon in Alaska.
Maybe this year is my year for a banded bird.
