    4 mallards
    2 gadwall
    1 wood duck

    The wood duck was banded off of the Columbia River in Washington 2 years prior to me shooting in the Delta.

    My blind partner shot a double banded woody from Chris Nicolai’s banding project near Fallon, Nevada.

    My best (or worst) band story happened 4 or 5 years ago. It was my birthday and I was hunting with a good friend at a club near Yolo. We were having a nice shoot when a pair of mallards came in from out front. We both pull up and he kills the drake on his side while I proceed to miss the drake on my side. My buddy swings over to the bird I missed and killed it clean as it was making its retreat. It was banded.

    Mallards, teal, a hen redhead and honkers. Kept a green band years ago because didn't know better. A bunch of sage grouse. The furthest was Montana to here in NV
