Hello all. I have spent some time reading a lot of posts here about those who hunt/ have hunted in the past around Swan Lake NWR. I know a lot of you guys are right there around it. Seems like there are a lot of opinions regarding a lot of different aspects of the area. I occasionally get an invite to a club up there and have gotten drawn for hunting Swan Lake. I love the area, and I love the history of the area. My grandfather used to tell me stories of he and my great-grandfather hunting geese up there and seeing more geese than words could describe. Both are long passed, but I vaguely recall stories of shell limits, mandatory check stations, and other things from my childhood he would tell us. Becuase of those stories, I feel I am lucky to still be able to hunt the area. Question for discussion: How has Swan Lake changed over the years? Only hunting it a few times a year, for the past 3-4 years, I haven't had the exposure many of you here have to the area. Nor have I logged the years to see it change. I continuously hear folks talk about how the area is so different than 20,30,40 years ago, both good and bad. What are your thoughts? Stories? Please, tell me your opinions. Thanks!
