    If that's a mottled, I'd sure like to know the info from that band.

    Interestingly enough he was destined for a taxidermist before I pulled the trigger.

    One of the “plantation bottoms” members from the TN forum called and asked for a pair of Drakes so he could do all the mallard species in North America. The gentlemen who own and hunt plantation bottoms treated me like a family member (red headed stepchild ;)) when I lived in Nashville and I’m always happy to return the favor.

    So he will be sent along with the one I shot yesterday morning as thank you gifts. The band will stay with me....

    It was a northern aggressor mottled duck he flew from belle glade Florida all the way down to the Everglades. Carpetbagger killed.

    Nice band!

    37 is 11 degrees warmer than I had yesterday and 19 higher than I had Tuesday. I had the two best days of hunting this season for sure and maybe of the last two seasons.

    Knowing those gentlemen, and having been to Plantation Bottoms, they'll have a worthwhile home.

    Maybe provide good pics of the band and it an be replicated for the mount. I had a taxidermist screw up a tagged Muskie so they offered to provide a replica at no cost. I required they also replicate the metal tag and thankfully they did a good job the second time.
