Daggum that was quick! :boohoo:
I just posted about the swans comin through on their way to MO earlier in the week.
Crystal swans kinda make a guttural grunt type call. There are calls made for swans, but there's just a couplethree states you can legally hunt them. When CJ and the boys were with me on TH couple years back we had some work into our dekes, for a couple oldtimers like us that was a sight to behold, them boys had no clue what they witnessed that morning, but someday hopefully they will understand.
When you hear a swan and want to hear a Canada, your mind will let you believe it is a muted off tone goose. I can honestly say that one morning when the canadas were flying, I was hunting a-8, we needed one more goose for me. two birds honking and flying at us right out of the morning sun. Right as they approached shooting range my hunting buddy called me off the shot...I wanted them to be a goose, we both thought we heard goose. But my fatal flaw would have been that I could not identify the bird. If you can not identify the bird as being what you are after -->Don't shoot...
all of the trailers in the lincoln shields lot ( concrete ramp ) had Illinois plates at 830. I guess Billy and crew came down the river from Alta Villa as there were no NCDS vehicles by the bridge...My eyes said 4 came in low and flew over A-1 or A-2 then towards A-11, that would put them over A-6. He was in the truck with a radio on so he did not hear any shots... He was on the the lot duck watching from 830 till around 10 am...
You know wonder if was some illini boys cause swig said he pulled into the blind at 530 and there guys already set up to hunt. Ha run them of and they weren't so happy he said. Oh and teah the villa is the place sk. Big lot have to back down to far to put in. Swig said there was 3 and they were older fellers. Some one had to have seen them shoot the swan cause the mdc was called. I bet it may had been the idiots that was set up in a blind before 6 to hunt. Makes you proud though one you have to jump fellers out of your blind.
