Swan Hunting in ND

Recommended Posts

I got a swan tag this year. Previous years i have Had Many chances at taking swans but didnt have a tag so i decided why not.

My question is. Do i need to be worried about shooting a trumpeter by some fluke. I have read alot about it and it seems like it is known that it can happen. Even the stuff sent with the tag said nothing about it.

If anyone has shot a swan or hunted them please share your experience.

Good luck

Hey Beerhunter,

I got a tag this year for my second time in ND. I hunt out by Rugby and as far as i know there are not many if any trumps out there.

The last time i got a tag i got a nice mature bird. It was a great expereince, but it tasted like an arm pit. So i didn't try again til now. If you shoot one, cook it right.

But the big thing is, they sound totally different. You couldn't tell them apart in the air, except for that. My sugestion is to go on you tube or something and hear the difference between the two. You will know in an instant.

When are you going out there?

Good Luck

not a whole lot of trumpeters in ND, but we would do the spot and stalk, find them in a slough and then we would sneek them, that way we could see them with the binocs to make sure. Good Luck the area we hunted in is around the Langdon area and west

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
