    Serious question. Is 1 out 10 Mallards in California banded ? I'm 0 for the last 398 greenheads here. That doesn't even count the " others" I've shot. So 0 for 1421. Haven't killed one for 6 years. Lucky sumbitches.

    GK1 and killducks, we have a lot of banding projects in the Flyway, especially on the various state wildlife areas and NWR’s. The California Waterfowl Association bands a bunch of birds as well. We shoot a majority of local birds (mallards especially) on and around those banding projects.

    Lots of gadwall get banded in a couple of areas and they migrate into a couple of areas once the weather pushes them.

    In the long run it’s a lot of luck and being in the right place at the right time.
