Strange Find

Recommended Posts

eyeguy 54

Had a great wade from 5:30 to 7:30. Even for mepp and stickbaits but the mepp fish were all small today. Wacy style on the sticks produced some nice smallies. Saw a pile of feathers and went to check it out and found a raptor foot. Banded so hope to find out what it is. Red footed falcon is my guess.

Interesting. It is probably of some importance since it was banded. Probably a peregrine falcon or something. There are a few around there. Let us know what you find out.

I had a injured pigeon hanging around the house a few years ago with a band on it. Ending up catching the bird and then looking up the owner via the net and the owner stopped by and picked up the bird. I did a web search on something like "pigeon tracking number" and it gave me what I needed. Then again not sure the owner wants the foot back.

Hey, that could be it good detective work jentz.

I found this...

http://www.pigeon.org/bandlist.php

Then entered some of the information from the band and this was the result (from the band listing):

Club Name : TWIN CITY CONCOURSE

Club Code : GOLD BAND

Club Secretary :

City : ELK RIVER

State : MN

Phone No. : 763-350-####

Email Address :

I took some information out of the result to keep it somewhat anonymous.

I would have guessed falcon... Looks like that pigeon became lunch for one of the critters that live along the river smirk

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
