What are the odds of this happening? Over the course of many years, but before this weekend, I have shot 3 banded Pintails. I went out Friday and the Pintail I shot was banded - over 12 yrs ago in Canada. I didn't hunt Saturday but went back out Sunday. You guessed it, the Pintail I shot on Sunday was also banded - 2 years ago in New Mexico. Two in a row! Just crazy, and something that will never happen to me again in my lifetime.
