It seems as though there are very few birds with bands harvested during the past few seasons here on the Shore. My hunting groups shoots about 400-500 geese a year and we haven't killed a band in about 4 years. I can only think back to one banded duck shot within the passed 5 seasons. I also do not see many pictures shared by friends where they have harvested bands during their hunt. (Besides of resident geese during September) Perhaps they are not banding as many birds?
