Cripes, it's a long time ago, I'll ask one of the other guys and get back. I didn't work on banding, it was the same method but with a different ending for the goose as the moulting drives. I only started after the banding and during the rubber hammer phase.
I think probably about 30 years for the banding - about a goose lifetime.



cheers grumpy, about 30 years ago would make sense from when i know the last of the banding was done...

cool feeling knowing ive shot such an old goose thats probably seen many a hunters decoys before Cheesy

cant remember exactly which year i shot the goose now, but definately between 2005 and 2008.. which would most likely make the goose pretty close to 30 years old if not already
  

fishing sure beats working,, i love animals,they're delicious
