How are the swan numbers on stillwater? I got a tag this year for the first time and I'm trying to plan the best time to go. Any chance of getting them to decoy with a few decoys?

Hey Quacker, Yes, they do decoy and calling them in is even better. A WOOO, WOOO, WOOO as loud as you can get in rapid series does the trick. As for decoys just take a couple of floater honker deeks and paint them white and leave the beak black. The more guys calling the better. They do sell the swan deeks but the last time I checked they were about $45 apiece. Good luck

My first year hunting them I got one about 4 weeks ago when they were in there by the thousands. Either I got extremely lucky or they are very easy to get had 3 come right in with 2 swan decoys $65.00 for the pair at cabelas and a call that I never used before but sounded like crap blowing through it so for some damn reason I sucked through it and it sounded great. Here is the video kinda hard to tell on mine but my buddies you can see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vasNNk8n1Zs

Good luck :thumbsup:

I'm probably going to try to make it up there this week. I see on the website that you can use boats in some units. I have a regular boat and a marsh rat. Is it worth bringing either of these up there or will I be able to walk into most places?

If you are refering to me quacker we seen them by grimes and no boat would be necessary plus I think boats are only allowed on weekends at greenhead not sure on this I've only been there 2 times now
