    Swans in Nevada

    Never drew any tags this year and it looks like the chukar hunting is going to be tough. Anyways, drew a swan tag and was wondering if anyone on here waterfowl hunts, if you've ever gone after them, and if you have any advice for me.

    From what I've found on the internet, it seems like they'll be migrating sometime around the beginning of December?

    Any help is appreciated as I've only lived in Reno a little over a year and have never duck hunted Nevada.

    Don't know anything about hunting them in Nevada, but my Grandfather was raised in Montana and as a kid they shot them. He said they were the best eating of any waterfowl he ever tasted.

    Very nice. They are big, I think it's worth spending $40 on a box of bismuth or heavi-shot, make sure you bring him down hard.

    There is a gun club I used to be a member of out by Fallon. It was called Green Head hunt club. It's in the Stillwater refuge. Used to be great hunting for geese and the occasional Swan. It's been a few years since I was there. Used to be $50 for the membership.

    I think it is 60$ now. I haven't been out there yet this year though.

    Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for the help. Knocked this guy down a couple of weeks ago. Ended up getting him out at the Stillwater NWR by Fallon. The lake that I got him at was called Swan Lake... go figure.
