Hey guys, I hope you all are as pumped up about the up coming season as i am. I live and hunt in North Carolina and have a friend with family in Seymour, Indiana. My buddy is completely knew to duck hunting and said his family has land that sometimes floods. I asked if he recalls seeing any waterfowl around his families farm and he said they are often covered in swans. I am completely foreign to hunting in Indiana, and hunting in fields is something that we dont do here. We have swamps and marsh. He wants to take me up there to hunt and I thought I would do some investigating before hand. Can any of you guys give me some advice before I make a decision? I know a lot depends on weather, But when is the best time to go? The farm is about 45 minutes out in the country from seymour. Is this a good area for ducks? Any help/advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

thanks for the info, do you guys have the opportunity to apply for a swan permit there? NC does a drawing and gives out 5000 swan permits. A person who is drawn for the permit is allowed to shoot one swan. Would thanksgiving be a good time to hunt there?

no swan permits here and thanksgiving can be hit or miss depends on the weather up north to push birds down. by then all the locals are in freezers or on prozac.

that sucks yall cant shoot swans, you should come to NC and waste one of those big suckers. Maybe a later date then thanksgiving would be best then. I'll consider christmas. Thanks a lot for the advice. I'll be sure to respect the state you live in and keep it clean. Yall try to save a bird or two for me.
