    My buddy and I drew permits to hunt at J. Morgan Futch waterfowl impoundment this year. As usual, the weather was bluebird-beautiful-terrible for duck hunting. But we both also drew swan permits and boy, were we glad we applied. Taking down these 2 giant birds was worth the trip. They were the only thing we got to shoot at that day. A flock of 4 were heading to join another flock and we timed our shots after determining who would shoot which bird. They were our 1st swans and both were large and mature. If you hunt waterfowl down east, it's always worth applying for a swan tag. You never know what might happen!

    Yes, sir! He met us at the gate and checked us out and then said he would be happy to take a pic. I have dealt with some real unfriendly wardens but this guy was a gentleman and a credit to the badge. I have only dealt with two other that were that polite out of about seven and I have never even been cited or warned by one. Glad to know there are a few like that out there.
