In light of the recent theft of Jeff Foiles' goose and duck bands, owner of Foiles Migrators, along with his other hunting gear from his truck at the Game Fair in Anoka, MN on the night of August 6, 2010, IronBands.com has initiated a new program to hopefully recover his as well as other lost or stolen bands.
We have received emails from other waterfowlers in the past about lost or stolen bands, but it was not until last night that we realized we could possibly do something about the losses.
If you or one of your hunting partners loses one or more duck or goose bands, you can post them here on the site.
Scroll to the bottom of HuntSkills to see the Lost or Stolen Bands section, and add them there. HuntSkills...
We believe making the band numbers available to others will help deter band theft and encourage recovery of the iron as the band numbers are easily traceable since each set of numbers is unique. Waterfowlers as well as law enforcement can then use the band numbers for the positive identification of suspect iron, and the eventual return of the waterfowl bands to their rightful owner.
