Default VA Tundra Swan

I was lucky enough to draw a tundra swan permit.
Looking for assistance to fill this tag. Are there any know guiding services or POCs who specialize in tundra swan for Virginia? Any know honey holes for this bird. I've seen lots of info for NC but very limited info for VA. Any and all info will be greatly appreciated.

I also drew the tundra swan permit for VA and I've got one for NC too. That kind of surprised me. There is a guy named Joe Austin that runs an outfit called DOA Outfitters. He guides for swan in VA. I had the permit a couple of years ago and contacted him. He seemed really good but the Navy decided to send us on deployment a few months early so I ate the tag that year.

I've already booked a guide in NC for the last week of Jan. For VA I'll be hunting right on the state line. I know a farmer that has a huge spread that sits in both VA and NC. Lots of times he has problems with the swans and geese eating his winter wheat. So he has said I can hunt. I don't have swan decoys so it will be pass shooting in his fields. Good thing is I can hunt either state which makes it easier since 3/4ths of what he owns is in NC. A Navy buddy of mine also got the tag for VA and the farmer said he can hunt too but I doubt if he would allow any extras.

You may want to contact the game and fish and see if they know any other farmers that have problems with them.

Thanks for the info Flags. Best of luck filling your tags. I have access to a couple of swan dekes. A friend of mine filled his permit during a duck hunt while using swan dekes. I have talked with DOA about a swan hunt. They are a possibility, but just a bit to expensive for my pockets.
