I like the Coon trapping and transfering idea to the Cormorants Islands, maybe someone could do that on those Erie Islands......................Hey Mallardman, just poking a little fun at you about Canada, you have a wonderful place to live, and it's second on my list next to my home country............your money does look a little funny though.....lol

I'm on the same page with you T-Man. In Mich there are an estimated 700,000 of these things that migrate here in the summer, at 1 1/2 lbs per day per bird that is a whopping 1,05,000 lbs of Great Lakes fish per day!!! And we wonder why our fishery is taking a hit??!!

Because the MDNR and ODNR aren't smart enough to say hey hank and ISD and other waterfowlers if you have the chance go ahead and pop a few.Today I could have bagged many as they seemed to like the layout spread, even had some geese come through if only it were a few weeks ago :pissed:

Here in Texas their a big problem. They would land on some of the commercial catfish farms ponds and literally eat all the fish out of the ponds. The feds finally are allowing these Catfish farms special permits to shoot these pests.

No worries hank, Canada should be made fun of eh! Aboot our money, it does look pretty goofy compared to the U.S. greenback. I don't know who ever thought of red or purple currency. Must have been a liberal!!

All that coinage and cold weather adds up to cold hard cash! Think about it. :laughing:

Cormorants

Bronc72. You're thinking about the Anhinga (AKA the water turkey). As far as I can tell, the anhinga is not protected. They were an accidentally introduced bird from asia (Maylasia I think). They look ver similar to the cormorant, but they have a slightly longer neck. A lot of people are probably seeing the Anhinga and thinking it's a cormorant. I was, until my dad pointed out the difference to me.

They look just like a snake when their on the water with that little beedy head and skinny neck swimming around. Hard target to hit with a scattergun..

Does anybody have a picture of one of these up close? I saw one fall from the sky the other day and it bit it about 300 yards outside of my goose spread. I went over to look and this bird was nasty. It had an iridescent green tint over all of his body. Anybody have close up pics?

I agree with everything. I salmon fish on the west side of the state and I don't see one all year and then when the alewife come to shore there are thousands of them. There goes the food for the salmon! They were very thick in Little Bay De Noc as well. I had the opportunity to see two up close :getdown: They are some ugly buggers! I saw the mount of one at fish point and it didn't look the same. MicroMike might be right. We might be confusing the species.
