It finally happened!!! Got my first band yesterday!!! We needed 1 more mallard to finish a 3 man limit. This dude came in like the Greatest American Hero making a crash landing. Actually looked like a woody the way he wqas darting and diving. I hit him twice and dumped him, and my cousin shot him on the water. I started gathering up the ducks in my tree and he started hollering!!! I couldn't believe it. That is the stuff you read about, it could never happen to me. He was banded in Saskatchewan Canada, August 2010. We wound up with 12 mallards 3 widgeon a gaddy and a ringneck.
