Default Out with The Preacher.....

My big magnum 10 gauge aka The Preacher has been getting some shooting this season. I've been hunting around Kingsville, Ontario which is the home of the Jack Miner Waterfowl Sanctuary. My goal in hunting this area was to hopefully shoot a Miner banded goose and I've managed to get two so far. I've also been able to take advantage of the new cormorant season and had a couple fun shoots on those.

Neat stuff! I have at least one book by Miner, but never knew about the sanctuary. And, what, pray tell, does cormorant taste like?

All of the Jack Miner bands have parts of a Bible verse on them.

Cormorants are shot as a pest type bird similar to crows, they are not eaten.

But...I've eaten crow more times than I care to admit...

Even a possum won't eat a cormorant....

Destry, Hope you kill every cormorant you see up there. Those dirty birds winter over down here in the Houston area and make a mess of everything. Wish we could shoot them down here. Truly a pest..
