Hey Mods, what did the poor bird do that got him banned?

All kidding aside, that's neat. I remember my first banded bird and that was about 30 years ago.

She must have done something cuz they run her out of Illinois confused2... She went from banned to canned pretty quick.... I saw that little misspell but it didn't give me the option to edit it.

Surprised such a young dumb bird made it to Texas, assuming y’all shot it here.

She was a little older than 4 months. Your earlier post said she was banded in Sept but was a Spring hatchling, I'll guess March or April.

Awesome!!

Been waterfowl hunting for 40 years and have zero, nadda, no bands.
Took a complete newbie on a teal hunt one time. First bird he shot had a band.
Asked me if it was anything special. hammer
