    Mike,

    I was so excited to get your text yesterday! Moxie is a great partner. That was a loooong retrieve. And always love seeing her with hearing protection. :bow

    Your picture reminds me that my only banded bull was also taken on your pond.

    Brings back memories for sure of that very special day!


    Merry Christmas to you Mark and the entire family :tu

    Way to go Mike, congratulations. Moxie sure looked like she was pooped out in those photos.
    Any info on the band?

    Rick, I certainly do remember the day you shot that banded bull sprig, at our club. We sure had a great time on that hunt.
    I want to wish you and your entire family a Very Merry Christmas.

    Hi Serge...It's always good to hear from you. Moxie was wore out after that really long chase and hunt in the tules along the levee.
    I do hope you've been having some decent hunting this season. For us, it has been slower than most.

    I did get the info back on the band.

    Kevin...That's quite a story about the banded redhead. Your nephew definitely had some incredible luck going for him as far as banded ducks are concerned.
