Tundra swans are arriving throughout northern Utah this week. As of November 1st, biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources had spotted more than 4,700 swans. “Swans are just starting to fly into the marshes,” shares DWR migratory game bird coordinator Blair Stringham. “If you’re one of the 2,000 hunters who drew a swan hunting permit in Utah, now is the perfect time to head to the marsh.” Swan hunting season ends December 11th. One reminder from the DWR is that within 72 hours of taking a swan, the bird or its head must be taken to a DWR office to be examined and measured and a harvest questionnaire must be complete before January 10th. Any hunter who fails to do so will not be allowed to apply for a swan permit in 2017.
