Very nice swarm.  I'd love to have a few more of those that were that easy

Riverrat, I'm in a similar boat to you.  I've gotten 4 cut out calls (landed none) and only one swarm call that I did get.  I price the cut outs such that my time is worth it.  I'm hoping that the season may be merely late, the no-flow Fall and nasty Winter may have killed off a few of those surviving feral hives that may have issued swarms as well.
