Banded drake mallard duck shot a few weekends ago with cousin Andrew and Bubba (Wayne Carey). Details are a little fuzzy, but the important part is that the duck was banded in Bottineau, ND. Why the hell is a duck without flight in ND? I assume it must be one of those lazy bastards that shits all over the greens at the golf course. And if that’s the case, he got what was coming to him.
Another point of interest is that Andrew’s friend, Jordan Seafoot, was in the Bottineau University Conservation program the same year as this duck was banded. Although he banded hundreds of ducks that year, it’s possible he was the one who placed the band on this one. Kind of an interesting tid-bit I s’pose.
