87 ducks, and 36 geese, and not a band.
Where are most banded birds found?
I woulda thought that there were birds in all fly zones, to track movements.

30 greenheads from western SD some were locals and some were bigger, fatter, and heavier from Canada. Not a band among them. 3 yrs ago I got a Canada Gooose that had a band from Sask I believe and that was the last. Magnum Man

I found a band a few years ago just lying on the ground. No bone or anything. It was on my land but close to some fish ponds where they shoot waterfowl to keep them moving. I sent in the numbers but never heard anything. miles
Look out for number 1, don't step in number 2.

I personally shoot anywhere from 50 to 200 ducks and geese a season for the past 40 years. Have got 4 bands ever. Maybe it's just my location, but I can't quite believe the big necklaces of bands that I see displayed on Arkansas duck guides. Makes me wonder if the total bag in some areas of the USA is just waaay to big!
