In Utah, there is zero penalty for accidentally shooting a trumpeter swan so it can't be that big of a deal to their population.

An interesting note is that in Utah, there are up to 60,000 tundras and only about 100 trumpters - makes sense to hunt them in that situation.  In WA maybe the situation is reversed?  I can see over 100 trumpeters in a single field any day of the week this time of year.

Also interesting is the population has doubled since hunting was allowed.

There's a lot of talk about being able to hunt them or not hunt them in this state.
I probably would never ever hunt them even if it was legal.
I do, however, would like to know how they taste.
Like chicken?, spotted owl?, bald eagle?  :dunno: :dunno: :dunno:
Just curious  :tup:
