Battle of the Bands Winner Announced
If you’re here for the first time, we have been having our Battle of the Bands contest all duck season long here in Southwest Louisiana and tonight we find out who the winner of the Sitka Hudson Suit is. We also added a youth division this year and so one lucky winner is announced here as well.
Here’s the breakdown of our entries this year:
- 2 Mallards from Wisconsin and Louisiana
- 5 Model Ducks that were all banded in Louisiana
- 1 Speckle Belly from Canada
- 1 Lesser Scope banded in Illinois
For anyone who doesn’t know what our Battle of the Bands contest is, let us explain. It’s basically a contest we hold every year to collect data to show us how many bands get killed in the area. It also helps us track where these birds are coming from and this helps us give you some light at that.
Plus it’s a fundraiser for all of the local high school fishing teams. So it’s for a great cause – the junior bass club and 4h shooting.
New Store Affiliates
In this podcast, we also discuss what is new in the store! We just teamed up with a local company (RX Baits) to help keep your supply of baits up with everything going on in the world!
They have very consistent baits, their colors look great, and it’s always nice to have local guys who know what is working around here. So we’re excited to get the chance to work with them and add some different things to the store.
Ammo Updates in the Podcast
The ammo shortage everyone is experiencing is also talked about. We tell you a little about what to expect in the upcoming months!
