ARKANSAS WOMAN, 80, BAGS STATE BANDED DUCK
An Arkansas woman, duck hunting on her 80th birthday, shot a mallard duck banded by Lyle, Minn., Future Farmers of America.
Mrs. Beullah Wallace of Gillette, Ark., shot the drake Jan. 8 on her 80th birthday. The duck had been banded by Dennis Helgeson, a Lyle High School junior last summer.
Helgeson received the bird as a day-old mallard in the state FFA banding program. He reared the breed for seven weeks before they were placed in a Mower County slough.
