Went hunting with a friend who is somewhat new to the game. On the way out I was telling him how I wanted to get a bird with a band this year. He asked me what I was talking about. I told him how they are banded and how you send in the information and so forth. He then proceded to tell me that he had shot a pintail a few days earlier that had one. I said your full of S##t. He then had a really sad look on his face as he told me that he had throwen the bird away do to the heavy impact that it had taken on when shot. He did however take a few pics in his garage and sure enough there is the Bling Bling. I told him that a Drake Pinner was a really nice bird to shoot and find a band on it.
