Swan Hunt 2015

wan hunt

Another year I missed having my number drawn to get a tundra swan tag.  So I went along with my camera in tow to capture the action.  The hunt took place on the Monday of MLK Day which is great because it gave some of the young folks the opportunity to get out in the ditch.  The recent rains made sure there was plenty of mud and a little water for everyone to stand in but it wasn’t long till the birds showed and the tags got filled.  Tundra Swan is great table fare and over the years I’ve fixed it a number of ways.  The popular method among the hunters that day was a stir fry and in the future I may have to give it a shot even though I like some Swan Pot Pie.

Hand warmers and good boots were needed for hiding in the ditch
