Well now I can say I was in on the killing of one this past weekend, first one I have ever seen of or heard of. My dad has been duck huntin for 30 years plus and this is the first one he has ever seen or heard of, and he got the band. Also it didn't have any letters or numbers on it either.

It may still be able to provide a number to reveal it's history.... if he is willing to send the band in for the process....

I guess everything is banded. A buddy of mine had a band from a pigeon on his collar.

If trapped in a banding project, Im sure they would possibly band it.It does puzzle me as to no visble numbers, even though maybe very faint.Sometimes the lab can determine the numbers. I took a black duck that was worn to the point of being unreadable, but you could still make out the writing. Could be one some one caught and banded themselfs.

We had a banded hen ring neck killed out of our blind a few years ago in Dover. Guys knocked it down in the corn right at the end of the hunt. One of them went to pick it up cause he wanted to keep the Jacks for training his dog. Heard him let out a "whoop" and he yelled this things got jewelry. Showed it to several at the ramp who said the same thing, they'd never seen one banded either.

Everybody thinks they are a scrap duck but they eat like a wood duck.
