    Anyone been out for the first split on Long Island? If so how did you do and what did you see? Ended up with a double banded black duck with a $100 reward... Banded in Quebec, so there has to be some migrators coming in

    Congratulations.
    Just curious if that was an older bird or one that was banded in the last couple of years?
    Some time ago I thought I read that they (Fed's) were scaling back or eliminating those money bands.
