Huntinguy – I have the 2 consecutively banded specks beat. I shot 3 canada geese from a flock – all were banded and the numbers were consecutive xxxxx-15, 16 and 17. My uncle shot at same flock got one bird no band. To be honest I was surprised to get 3 geese w 3 shots and no I wasn’t floating a 4th shell ;) (had a 1187 then) – killed the 1st 2 dead as hammers the last one had to chase down. I talked w a DU and FWS bio and this was the 1st time they ever heard of a triple w/ consecutive #s. I have 4 other bands – a woodie, redhead and 2 greenheads – the one band was really worn and it was banded 10 yrs earlier when duck was a juvenile.
I have been in blind for a number of others as well. I have been very lucky when it comes to jewellery.
