Trumpeter Swans

About the online course

To apply for a Utah swan hunting permit, a prospective hunter must first pass this swan hunter orientation course. If you apply for a permit before taking this course, your application will be rejected.

This course is designed to teach hunters to distinguish Trumpeter Swans from their more common cousins — especially the abundant Tundra Swan. Although there is no penalty for a licensed hunter mistakenly shooting a Trumpeter Swan, great care should be taken not to shoot this bird.
