With only six states in the U.S. allowing the harvest of tundra swans and hunters from about 40 states coming to North Dakota to try their shot at the trophy bird, this year's statewide season yielded the highest harvest number to date.


Nationwide, 9,600 swan hunting permits are allotted and North Dakota has 2,200 of those. Each hunter is allowed one swan per season.
