No limits on eiders or cormorants except a short huntingperiod; October 01. - December 01.
Limit on mag though, one in the chamber on in the mag only.

That's not that short of a season. Thats exactly how long ours is here in Wisconsin. Ours runs the last week of september to the last week of november.

This is awesome! I would give ANYTHING in this world to be able to shoot cormerants! If there was a season, I'd be the first one on the water.

I don't know where the cormerant thing came from, but those are most all common eider, mixed with some goldeneye and merganser. :no:

There are plenty of cormorant in the pictures. Look harder. They are very abundant over there, just like here.

I've wondered the same thing. We can shoot them, no limit, but I've never eaten one.

Some Danes I've talked to eat seagulls. I think I'd rather eat a shag!
When I die I hope its in a duck blind, that, or shot in the back climbing out of a jealous mans bedroom window.

I'm waiting on the day that Florida puts a bounty on them because they are thick everywhere.

I could make a living here if there were a bounty, but I think oiling the eggs would be more cost effective as a population control measure. I'll just keep shooting them for free :grooving:

Nice pics. How do you like the Ultralight 28? Do you use the 28 for smaller birds or all around?
