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 were 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 5 AM.
The lake was quite low with 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 flew close enough to drop out two, a Trumpeter and a tundra. and each got a limit in asst ducks.
Home by 1 PM.
HUMMM good day .
old is the new young
