A cormorant season is needed down here too.

I was wondering about the Cormorant's. Those things are everywhere these days.

We used to call them water turkeys.... Although, I am not even sure where that term came from, or if anyone else ever called them that. At a distance you could mistake them for geese, and they they'd put on that glide and you knew they were water turkeys....

They have decimated the perch and walleye fishery in northern Lake Huron.

I'm glad Ontario got one board with a season, I wish the US would do the same. They're thick on every large body of water up here.

Cormorants. Another example of the folly of: not-threatened; totally un-managed; but protected. Kooks in control.

I shoot cormorants on sight. I think the true name for them is "Anhinga", but I could be wrong about that. I don't know what the law is concerning them in GA, but when I catch one sunning on my dock with it's wings outstretched in the sun, and it's excrement all over the chair it's perched on, a load of #4s ruins it's day.

They're different birds. Similar but different. Google cormorant vs anhinga

A good friend who has since passed had 600 fenced acres in North Texas and several bass ponds. He used to practice with his Remington 700 in 7mm Rem Magnum on them! Said they blew up really nicely.

Charlie,

It's just got a regular splinter forend. I'm glad, I think a beavertail is a sin before God.

Scott,

We shoot them down south on the fish farms under a depredation permit. During the middle of the day when they're roosted drying their wings my friend drives around and works on them with his .17 varmit rifle. One pop with that and they look like a tar shingle falling off a high roof.
