....with a little extra! Believe it or not in all my years of waterfowling I've never shot a banded goose, so it was quite a nice surprise to get one for the first bird of the year!


He wasn't much of a traveler, I got him less than a mile from where he was banded a year ago-especially compared to my only mallard band, which was shot more than 1500 miles from where it was banded. Still pretty neat though, also there is a pretty good chance that I know the guy that banded him-small world!
Hope everybody had a great opening weekend!

Nice pumpgunner, I'm 36 never gotten 1, 3 years ago took my nephew hunting and his very 1st goose was banded now he's hooked and this year his 1st duck of this season was banded so at the age of 17 he's gotten both before me let alone he got a wood duck last year out of a group of mallards (or so I thought) I flushed to him on a small river.
