Check out the episode posted below from the Outdoor Channel’s American Birdhunter featuring our Mallard Tracker program (timestamp 5:50 – 9:50). While hunting with Nate Salisbury of Blackdog Guide Service in Ontario, the crew of American Birdhunter shot one of our banded hen Mallards that had a GPS unit attached to it. This hen was part of our Mallard Tracker program and this episode of American Birdhunter features the crews response to this exciting surprise!

Our Mallard Tracker program allows you to follow 20 Mallards marked with GPS telemetry units during the non breeding period. Each week we post maps of the birds daily movements, back-dated by two weeks to ensure their safety. Interested in obtaining real-time data where you can log-on and find the location of your bird? Become a sponsor in the Mallard Tracker program and receive Google Earth location fixes! To learn more about sponsoring one of our Mallard Tracker birds please contact our PhD student conducting the research
