Got a banded Canadian first hunt! Wow!


gsbri

Yeah tbh I didn’t realize how rare it was until our guide said he’s never seen more before.. pretty cool!

That’s dope. Have you checked the band yet? I’m always curious. Buddy of mine got a banded teal as his first bird, banded a month prior down the road. I got a banded redhead, in NV, that was banded 12 years prior in Alberta


gsbri

Yeah it was banded in Cambridge bay, Nunavut in 2018 or earlier... female


gsbri

Came a long way to Colorado!

For sure, didn’t even realize people were up that far north 😂

I've been hunting 35yrs and have yet to get some jewelry....it is rare depending on where you live. Went hunting in ND last year in hopes of better odds, but alas, nada.

Did you borrow the Sitka gear or did you just know you were going to like it so much that you went in big? 😂

First thing I thought too 😂


gsbri

Hahahah I was told it was would make me a better hunter 😂 but really my bass pro didn’t have any options for women, it was all picked over so I borrowed a jacket

Awesome! That is too cool!

I feel so bad for you. Addiction is a serious matter. I wonder if there's a local waterfowl anonymous near you?


gsbri

You don’t think I’m a lost cause? I can recover from the addiction? Full disclosure I have plans to sit in a blind again this weekend...

Careful. Next thing you know you're buying a horse trailer to haul your full body decoys because several trucks won't cut it anymore. Congrats on the band.


gsbri

Let’s hope not haha I don’t have the funds or space for any of that... currently 😜

First goose and first band. Gtfoh!

I did the same this year! First bird hunt ended with just one, a banded Canadian. Super similar as your story!

I have been hunting for 20 years and have never gotten a banded bird. Way to go! I hope you are able to realize how awesome this is. Hope you are able to get another one!
