    Anyone heard anything about a tundra swan season next year? I have been told there will be a season. Need to be drawn in a lottery.

    Hopefully this is true. There are plenty around. One per season wouldn't hurt. Maryland should follow.

    Delaware is an anti hunter state IMO when it comes to waterfowl.... I would assume that it will never have a Swan season.

    We are getting a swan season. Guessing about 115 permits.
