Thanks again to the Minot Delta Waterfowl guys and J. Clark for allowing me the chance to tag along on the banding project.

Here are some pics of the event below - also see the story on the duck banding here: Duck Band's Beginning

Lots of kids there, including one of Leo's daughters (below)


Netting them is a lot cheaper then using decoys. :)


Score!


Very Cool


No bands on this coot

Leo teasing his daughter


Get me out of here!

dblkluk can walk on water too...


See you in a couple weeks


Just shove it in your pocket, nobody will notice


Be aware of set nets

Great write up there Chris and some awesome photos. Good to see so many people involved including kids and parents. Hopefully we can see some of this bling show up later this fall.

Yep thats it.
Of the 5 or so times I've banded this was the first time I had been on this site.

Way to man handle those drakes dblklk!!
Its hard to hold a live duck and dig the can of orange spray paint out of your pocket at the same time.. :p

Seriously though,
A big thank you to the fellow commitee members as well as Gary and the staff at the refuge for allowing us to help once again.

This is one of the most anticipated projects of the year for our chapter.

Yep, Todd was there.

I couldn't agree with you more Buckseye.

Anyone who enjoys the outdoors should be thankful to have guys like them "taking care of things" for us. :beer:

Looks like you guys had an awesome time! Good to see kids being envolved, im sure they will remember that for a long time! Also, good work Minot chapter with spending your money on a project that had a positive direct effect on waterfowl hunting!

Did they band coots too? I heard there is a lot more of those out there then people realize. This is the first summer I haven't help band ducks in the last couple years. Man it is a good time!
