    LOL@NCDC...It is Fun and something different for sure...Man It was COLD!!! this morning!!! And once the Sun popped out I think the temperature dropped 10 degrees more lol but turned into a nice day...The mallards are Fun to watch work but we screwed up a few times trying to get Video lol My Buddy said..when they come this time around...We take'em!!! Then they wouldn't come back lol I know 1 thing for sure..My Gun is getting a Good workout for Turkey season lol...I caught myself this evening pricing another Mossberg 930 in Duck Blind Camo lol But that's gonna have to wait lol.

    Thanks Diane..Seen 1 lone fisherman out in the cold and I thought of you this morning lol but he was Striper Fishing.

    BANDS
    BTW NCDC, Called about the reward band and the lady said that since it's a reward band that it should have been double banded? But guess he lost 1 some how and when she found out that the hen that was with him was also banded she said 'You better go get a lottery ticket!!!' lol...Crazy I know and didn't even see the bands at first lol

    yea i had to reread your post whenever i saw it. most the time when they have a reward band that have another band on the opposite leg. thats crazy tho to kill 2 banded pairs!! in the same flight at that. id be put in an insane asylum. haha. congrats!!! you better get dem mounted together. heck of a story behind em an would look good on the wall together with their bling!

    Hellifiknow lol Got a answering machine when dispatched ...The reward band just said REWARD $100 with the Number and used to be painted Green and the hen had a 1-800 number and the Band number with something? Fort laurel MD and the zip I think? I'll have to look and get back with ya...Makes me wonder how the other band on the Drake came off...They were Big Mallards and yes they were together until death did them part!!!
