North Carolina plays a vital role in the yearly cycle of the Eastern Population of tundra swans, wintering more swans, by far, than any other state on the East Coast. Each fall, approximately 65,000 – 75,000 swans migrate to northeastern North Carolina to take advantage of the abundant food sources. North Carolina is becoming a true trophy hunter’s paradise for Swan. North Carolina waterfowlers harvest more tundra swans than any other states. The chances are plentiful to obtain the Swan of your choice. North Carolina holds 6,500 permits for use by both residents and non-residents.

Trophy North Carolina Guided Swan Hunts has a 100% opportunity on our field hunts. Your guide will set up the swan decoys, and each hunter will be given a white suit. Like our snow goose hunts, hunters will lay on goose chairs in the middle of the decoys. Your Guide will do his best at picking out a nice white trophy swan.
Hunters also have the option of hunting swans over the water while duck hunting. This is a great way to get more hunting time in. We DO NOT RECOMMEND! Hunters looking for a trophy swan to hunt over water. Its a lot harder to pick out a nice white bird. This is a good way for hunters who have a permit, and looking to put an extra bird in the boat!
Hunters are allowed 1 swan per permit, per year!
Permits are awarded by a lottery. Hunters must apply between August 1st and October 1st. You can apply by contacting the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission , or apply anywhere that sells North Carolina hunting licenses.
Hunters can also add other hunters to a permit party. A party number will be given to the Hunter that starts the permit party. Up to 5 hunters total can be added to a party. ALL Hunters must have a valid North Carolina hunting license at time of applying for a Tundra Swan Permit. Failure to have a valid North Carolina hunting license at time of applying, will automatically kick the whole party out of the system! Tundra Swan Permits are not 100% draw, nor has a money back guarantee if you, or your party is not awarded a permit!
Cost to apply for a North Carolina Tundra Swan Permit is $15.00 per hunter.
Fourth Generation Outfitters and their guides are not held responsible for forgotten permits, swans not harvested, hunters not receiving a Tundra Swan Permit, and if you accidentally shoot more than one swan!
