Was wondering if anyone knows why swan permits are given out only in a few states and not managed by flyway like everything else? Ive always assumed its a payoff to states that are impacted the most by the swans but not sure on this. It would be nice if my state got a few permits to allocate.

I've always been told that due to the limited numbers of total birds it was more logical to offer permits in their main wintering areas as to offer more hunters a better chance of success. With X numbers allocated nationwide if each state or flyway was to receive their % of permits there would be very few people in each state that could obtain them...and limited chance for success. Whether or not this is the actual reason I am not certain but here in NC where a majority of the population winters one has a very good chance of harvest simply due to the larger numbers of birds in the area.
