Picture from Swan Lake about 1978

Anyone remember back when Swan was THE place to be? I got in a few good ones shortly before it went downhill. Found this picture while going through some old boxes of my parents. Pretty sure this was from R-3. Notice the three birds we used as decoys. The refuge was right in front of us. Had some good hunts there with my mom, dad, and oldest brother.

Nice, I remember those days. Dropped many a Honk back then around Swan. Thanks for the memories.
Layout boats and blinds are pure death from below to the mallet's but leaning on a tree is the best deal in the woods!

I shot my first Canada goose at Swan Lake in 1960. I moved to Chillicothe in 1963 and shot many more in the '70s and 80's. We only shot one this year, though. The population is healthy, but their migration timing and distribution has sure changed.
