Just banded my first bull calf at about 4 months old. He’s 5 days out, vaccinated, acting normal, and sack is dusky/dark and smaller already. Is there a timeframe where they are most likely to have problems with infection?

Sounds like a good start. Unless something like tetnus comes along you should be ok.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT
out to pasture

like said above as long you gave a tetnus vac in warm weather or warm wet conditions you should be fine dry weather they should stay clean fairly well ,i band all mine anymore,a lot less issues to deal with and they seem to keep moving ,
ive banded 1 yr olds slowed them down maybe 1 day then back to normal
