I heard only a dozen or states have done the dove banding thing. VA did it for like 2 years is all. Be cool to get one.

Gauge wife says i get everything moved and stuff set up I can go hunting. I've nearly broken my back this week to make sure it happens.

They can be somewhat common.....................

Roughly 2000 dove are banded in the state each year and have been for roughly 7 years now. The goose banding program here in Oklahoma has been put on hold after this last summer of banding since there is more than 20 years of data on the resident population. I believe the plan is to evaluate and possibly band more geese in the future as needed

Wow! thats a lot of goose meat.
In all the years of hunting, I've never killed a goose. What it the best way to cook them, as I don't kill anything I can't eat.

Dennis:
I chicken fry um all.
Cut the breast off then fillet them in half.
Chill them till they are icy then tenderise & season.
Then to the frying pan.

Fish, That was a good day of banded honkers. ;)
We shot 9 banded one morning on Lawtonka years back.
Yet for the most part 90% of geese here are banded.{ You already know that though.}

Alot of geese around that area may have bands and to a point it takes away from the thrill of shooting a banded bird. But its still nice nevertheless. Lord will my day will come I'll get one. Still have many a hunting cherry to pop. I guess that one thing that keeps me at it.

Bull, I can tell you that the migrant bands that I have collected have a lot more meaning to me. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy shooting a banded bird, but knowing that it came from a little farther away than 5 or 10 miles makes it a little better in my book. I don't mix and match my migrant bands with the resident bands. Until that particular hunt, I actually had more migrant bands than I had resident bands.

Out of the last 9 seasons here in OK.
All mine have been residents except {2} & they both came from Stuttgart AR. {All Canadians}
Shot both of them on Waurika Lake about 4-5 seasons back.
