Look for Leg Bands Or ‘Trackers’ on Indiana GeeseResearchers from the Division of Fish & Wildlife, Ball State University, and Franklin College are using tracking devices to study the behavior of Canada geese in Indiana. If you harvest a goose with one of these devices on its leg, in addition to reporting the metal leg band to the Bird Banding Laboratory, please call 765-285-8842 to report the tracker.
