Tried to apply for swan permit for my son and friend (I have shot my fill), but shows up as a "party hunt".
Wrote DNR and asked why, this is response:
Thank you for your recent inquiry to North Carolina Wildlife in regards to applying for the Tundra Swan Permit. The Tundra Swan permit can be applied as an Individual or has a Party hunt. Based on your e-mail below, it appears that you are trying to add yourself to a party which is going to require you to enter a Party Number. If you are applying as an individual, you will need to choose “Start a New Hunt” party and then you will be assigned a party number.
Anybody from NCDNR care to comment. Has it always been this way? Shot my swans years ago at Mattmuskeet and do not remember how got permit.
