Well I got my band info back from a canada I shot this year. It was banded on 8 Sep 1993 and I shot it on 8 Sep 2003. Exactly 10 years to the day. The certificate said it was born before 1992. It was banded about 4 miles from where I shot it. It was with another goose which was probably banded as well but I wiffed on that shot. It was a male and it was listed as a small-canada.
