The guys I saw were carrying them back to their vehicles, so I would hope they had permits.
I got checked by the DWR out on Turpin last week. They pulled up in a boat next to my boat. I have never been checked while hunting from a boat. I liked that they were out there, but I bet next time they think twice about coming in that shallow stuff with a hyperdrive. It's longtail country where I was hunting.;-):mrgreen:
I saw a single Pelican flying at farmington this last weekend. Not a good time to be a large white birds flying low down there. Oh but wait they have all completed there Swan ID course. So no worries then.
I have been seeing a bunch of them out of the swan zone. I wish that they just kept the swan hunt open throughout the entire state. Just let the people shoot their 2,000 swans and be done with it. I had a swan tag this year, and it would have been a much more enjoyable experience if I hadn't been limited to hunting south of 1A. I have a hard time believing that they would see an increase in the number of trumpeter swans harvested if they did this.
