Not reporting bands defeats the purpose to the studies. Your actually doing all duck hunters a disservice. I too have a bunch that I have given to kids thought the years, but I never would hurt the process. I disagree on how you view bands! Bands are obviously very important to you, since you seem to pay so much attention to them at the ramp and on my postings? You always have something to say about them, so YEAH, they are very important to you. If they weren't, you'd walk on past the post. Funny, this place is so dead, I placed the other thread on bands and this one as a fishing expedition, to get some folks to post and hopefully bring life the refuge. Guess CPR on a corpse, or one with so much negativity is a futile thing to do. I've had one jerk insinuate I stole them, another that I purchased them on ebay, another Jack *** tell me to be more sponsor like, and you... oh well-- too many issues to list Anyhow, enjoy your knitting , since it's probably the only other thing you are allowed to do in Kalifornia. Now hurry, there's got to be a sale of KY somewhere you can hit. .
