Where to Swan hunt in Nevada

Postby Griffi-hunts » Wed Oct 30, 2013 12:23 pm

I was drawn for one of the 650 swan tags issued in Nevada. Being new to the State, I was hoping for some suggestions on where to hunt and when to hunt swans in Northern Nevada. My counties to hunt are Story, Lyon and Pershing.
Thank you

Stillwater is probably your best chance at success or you can go to mason valley where some hang out.

Best results I've had are to pattern them when they get to Stillwater and then sit where they're flying. I know that sounds pretty "no duh" but if you can catch them over land it's a lot easier to get them. Also, keep an eye out for stragglers to a larger group. They tend to be pumping to catch up and not paying as much attention to altitude and what's below them.

Put out a lot of white decoys in water. Usually works.

Umm... Isn't mason in Lyon?
Ummm.... Isn't Stillwater in churchill?

Wait... I see he said story in the OP...
Trust me. 8 hours in a pond with leaky waders, to not fire a single shot... Is still better than work.
