I haven't seen anything yet. Hope that's not a bad sign. With my luck, my application probably got chewed up by the dogs. Hopefully, they are just going in alphabetical order with the notice emails.

I used 3 1/2 Winchester BB's I think was what they were... had to chase the **** thing all the way across OB to finally snap its neck. :? I should have just shot it with my regular Kents... but it was my first year. I think if I had it to do all over again, I would take ten shells of very heavy shot as swan loads and put the bird down right away.... something like a box of Tungsten-Matrix or one of the other very heavy alternatives. Oh.. a little advice... its like watching a big plane come in... they're going a lot faster than they look. :wink:

I have killed my swan last year with winchster 3 1/2 bb and droped it right in it tracks. it not the shell that kills the bird it teh shooter. as long as you get it in close and hit it right it will die right there. I would not shoot anything but 3 1/2 shells at them or pay teh extrea money and buy hevy shot or something like that. but if you dont want to spend the money get some 3 1/2 or 3 bb or bbb.there fun to hunt when decoying them.
