I love goose hunting. The other day, 3 0f the 8 canadian geese I killed were banded. Does this happen very often?

Not in my neck of the woods.

Great luck you got there.

it seems like when the bands are coming they are coming. It had been a while since i shot a band, then on the last day of our season, i shot a pair that were both banded.

I've seen a number of banded birds during the summer, but in 35 years of goose hunting I have yet to have a whack at them in the fall.

Congratulations!

Goose Man congrats.
Must of got into a family group? By the way how many can you shoot a day and where are you from? I Nebraska we can only shoot 3 a day. I've shoot 2 banded geese this year both in IL. I normally get one or 2 out of my pit a year but, there is nothing normal about this year.

Congrats on the bands. 3 out of 8 sounds real lucky to me. I guy I hunt with told me that he was at the public lake we hunt at in the summer and he saw 4 geese standing by the water and they all had bands. :twisted:

Congrats I've yet to shoot a banded goose or duck. I've seen a few neck collared geese but it was never when i was hunting. The season is about done here so maybe next year.

Congrats, I shot three that came in to the decoys and 2 of them were banded, they were probably a pair as they were male and female and were banded on the same day.

alot of shooting bands does have to do with your spot, some are just in a flyway. Freddie Zink has a spot in ohio, that they shoot bands out there everytime they are there, in 24/7 there is a scene where they shot a whole bunch of neck bands in a row.
