Good sport is trying to hit one swimming with an open sighted .22. You likely won't get a shot at less than 75 yards or so, and only their head and neck is above the surface once you pop one off in his direction........... and it's constantly moving.

Thank you, John. I learned something over coffee this a.m. I have Anhingas here, not cormorants. I can see the differences when pics are compared. Our birds are very black, even with feathers dry. The cormorants, like Destry shoots, are browner. The head on an Anhinga is slimmer, too.

I'm familiar with depredation permits for deer. They ruin our fields of young cotton and peanuts. I can see how these things would ruin a catfish farmer's profits. Wonder if fish farmers can get a permit to shoot ospreys?

Several years ago My neighbors were doing a great deal of shooting early in the morning for several days. I finally went over there to discover they were shooting cormorants over there newly stocked pond. 54 of the critters won't get any fish. By the way cormorants are protected around here. But, you don't mess with some peoples stocked ponds.

I also agree with Destry on his opinions of beavertails on a SxS

Is it possible shoot to too many cormorants?
