Finally Got Info Back On the Jewlery

Earlier this fall I shot my first banded mallard> Hard to believe seeing as I have been hunting for a long time but we are not known in this area for seeing banded birds. I shot it in October on the first trip to SW Wisconsin and just recived the official document. The Drake was banded in Kentucky and hatched sometime before 2007.
Looking forward to tomorrows hunt on the river. There has been a huge influx of geese in the last two days and they are on almost every pond and lake the way they used to be. Also starting to see more mallards but not expecting to see the push until next week starting on Wed. with a cold front coming out of Canada bringing snow and high winds from the North.
