Curious to hear from those, if any, who have tried to research old bands. A good friend and hunting buddy passed away several years ago and his widow gave me his band collection. We could only find 3 certificates out of the 20 or so bands. Don't know if we just couldn't find where he had placed them or if he just didn't report them. He started hunting in the late 50's so some of the bands could date back that far. Basically, I would just be looking for species, band date and recovery date (not wanting certificates). I have not contacted the USFWS yet.
