I would rather waste some cormorrants. Them hot dogs with wings are ugly. Not to mention that they ruin a lake in no time. :salude: :salude: :salude:

Cormarant.......they are breeding like crazy up here and they eat something like three times their body weight in fish a day. I spooked up a group of 75 of them while scouting one of my spots yesterday. There are thousands in this area. The DEC tries to "harrass" them into leaving and not tending their nests, but it's not working.

Dump ducks

Those white dump ducks would be great to shoot.
I bet they taste like McDonalds french fries.

I'd have to go with comarants. At least you can use seagulls to help ya find where the white bass are bustin shad! Besides it's kinda fun to watch em chase the skiers all over the lake.

I think we are allowed to kill cormorrants here....and there isn't a bag limit either.

I would much rather see a commorant season than a seagull season. While sea gulls are a pain to deal with commorants are destructive. They eat a ton of fish, and the good fish too not the crappy carp or bullheads. The stink up a lake. All and all a total nucinece. I would love to see the goverenment get rid of them all but that is just me. Correct me if I am wrong but aren't they a protected species still??

I really don't want any part of either, but the numbers are impressive. Driving across Iowa earlier this week, I saw a huge group of waterfowl up ahead crossing I-80. At first I couldn't tell what I was seeing- ducks or geese. Then I got closer. Commorants. Hundreds of them. :thumbsdown:

Uh mean theres no season? :laughing: Cause i sure have killed my share...i take my shotgun out icefishing, when those damn seagulls get close to my perch i let em have it. Heres the thing, ducks come in fast, they cross, twist, and are gone...seagulls glide over, wings open, low altitude...if you miis on the first 3 shots theres still the 4th. :toofunny:
"teal, teal, albino teal....wait, those are seagulls...take em.

I don't know about NB but in NS they are protected. :pissed: But if you want to shoot some I can assure you that they are legal in Alaska. Stouff eats them all the time. He said they were Alaskan Black Ducks :laughing:
