Do you have an epic band recovery tale you want to share with the world? Whether it's your first band, your faithful duck dog's last retrieve, an unbelievable chance encounter, or something else altogether, we want to hear from you! WILDFOWL has two different ways for you to contribute, through our Band Tales and The Living Skies columns.
Band Tales are short stories from hunters who retell the exciting, interesting, or unbelievable account of their bird band recovery. Be sure to include all the details and what made this outing extra special for a chance to be featured in an upcoming Band Tales column in WILDFOWL Magazine.
