The Boy and I went Swanen today. Had to do it fast the water is freezing out from under us. It has been 15* for 5 days and 14" of snow with a forecast of another foot and -2*.
The Goose hotline said there was 4000 swans in our area, but freezing fast.
We found open water and it was covered with swans and duck of all kinds.
It was a rough trip 40 mph wind blinding snow and around 5* drifty and very dark at 5AM.
The lake was quite low with a 100 yards of open lake bed to the water.
FUN times. 
The wind kept the ducks flying a few hundred swans steadily arriving to rest.

Kept us busy to say the least.
Had some luck with the swans, a few flue close enough to drop out two, a Trumpeter and a tundra. and each got a limits in asst ducks.
 Home by 1PM.
HUMMM good day .

Very nicely done! Glad to see it works without any undue mojo. Fine looking birds will make some fine looking meals. Those swans should fill a small corner of the freezer.
...oh yeah! thats gonna hurt!

The IQ and the life expectancy of the average American recently passed each other in opposite directions.
