So after a hard season of chasing mallards all season and coming up empty handed most days,it finally paid off..was lucky enough to get a jack miner band on the last morning. I've been pretty lucky over the yrs and have shot a few banded birds here and there but a miner band is a first for me.just got the info back the other day and figured I'd share

That is awesome! Had to enlarge the pic to see the verse. I will probably never harvest one with a bible verse but it is very high on my wish list.

Congrats! 2004 is an old band, AND it was the 100 year anniversary of the Jack Miner banding program!

Preciate it fellas. Excitement runs thru me anytime I pick a bird up and see a band,but when I read this one the excitement was a totally different level!

I know what you mean I shot a mallard hen and hated I missed the drake threw bird in blind and didn't even notice the band until the sun hit it and the bling started shinning then wasn't to upset about shooting the hen but always wondered if drake was banded
