I wish I knew where the majority of them are. I only have 5 left on my keychain ive got since I've moved out. The others were hanging from a mirror on a piece of string in my old room. Mom got in there and did lord knows what with all my stuff after I moved. Friggin shame, I've lost a few cool momentous of my youth. Spurs off my first turkey and tail feather from my first rooster. After I got my house situated I went back to grab them and they were no where to be found. She claims she didn't throw anything away.lol yeah right.

Yeah. At least I sent the info in for the band reports on them. Not a total loss.

Not at all ,
I have kept all of my reports as well.
The majority are the old style where you called it in and they sent your a certificate the last few I have killed they send you a email and you print your own.
I also made a copy of each of the checks I received for the money bands on the double banded birds from the Gayle Ford Foundation.
It's just one more piece of documentation.

I keep it tucked in my jacket except for the call loops.
But Yes they always have something to say and you have know idea the rash of crap I take.
One of my buddies took a 3/4 inch piece of conduit 30 inchs long and cut almost all the way through it every 3/4 of a inch apart so it looked like all goose bands and then wore it for the next 15 mins.
They all laugh and I laughed as well.
I but if noticed they all have all their bands on their lanyards it may be two or six or twelve but they are all sporting them.
I just happened to be in the right place at the right time more often and simply put I'm in the field almost every day of season so I have a little more jewelry.

Where were yours banded , Joe ?


My farthest ones were in Alaska I have several from Canada , one from Washington , several from Oregon , and a number from northern Ca. From Alturas to Sacramento and Los Banos One from Nevada.
The largest number of honkers were Arnold , Montpellier , and the Delta.
Currently I have 52 goose bands and 30 ducks , 6 of the geese were double banded and one duck was.
I have given several to my sons and grandsons that were shot when we were together.

With hunting with the same fellas for the last 10/12 years and our normal set-up with individual brush blinds 30 yds
apart , you gotta pay attention to what birds go on your strap around here . Even tho it's all in fun , it keeps you guessing
whether it was a bling bird or not !............honesty comes at the Trucks , usually !

You always hear ( well my dog retrieved it and it always retrieves what I shoot ) before the laughing !
It sure makes for a good surprise , if you're into keeping bands . :lol: :thumbsup:

I started waterfowling seriously in an area where it seemed like every third goose was banded, so there was no thrill, and I thought of them as "used" birds someone else had already had in hand. Never became a collector, and even if alone when one came along, it would go to the next kid I saw with a call. Now my grandsons get them.

But I love seeing the dog coming with a band when I've guest hunters, because it gives me a chance to angrily demand, "Who shot that bird? I need to know who shot that damn bird." Sometimes a sheepish hand will raise, and I get to administer a happy surprise. Other times, no one will fess up, and I get to say, "Well, I didn't shoot it, but guess its band will go to the dog." and watch the backpedaling and claiming start.

You are right Legband , we have been blessed with a lot of Doves this year , we can only hope for more than expected
Waterfowl in the area with little water .

Fresh'n up that Goose call as it's only a couple weeks away till the shooting starts ! :thumbsup:


Rick

I'm sure you have to make the call of ( who gets the bling ) , my dog is kind of possessive with a good eye for jewelry
( she has been taught WELL ) and it helps in keeping friends that I hunt with but with her checking one bird and going to the
next , has got to stop ! :lol: :lol:

Yea boy you hit that one in the head with out knowing it.
I have a company that has sent me some goose calls and they want me to use them and take some pics.
they really are pretty good calls
But they are not what Im used to.
I'm having a hard time switching over , It very well may just be to confidence factor.
