@Papachessie...Don't Kill Albino Brant!!!

The maximum penalty for violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act is up to a $15,000 fine and six months imprisonment, and additional fines could be imposed for each bird killed, according to the release.


That could be a lot of money for 49 of 'em!!!

Could someone smarter than I am please tell me why it is illegal to shoot gulls?

Interesting.

I agree with one of the responses in that article
As fish carrion eaters, I don't think they would taste very good. It wouldn't make sense to kill something (other than or vermin) unless you planned on eating it


I sure wouldn't eat them, but there are places I can think of that need some birds culled.

Do you shoot ducks without identifying them first?

How many species of north american gulls can you differentiate on the wing?

Seagulls are seacrows imo.
If they were black we'd be shooting them.
It's a racist thing to not shoot white birds. :grooving:

All of the pacific flyway species. They taste like crap. Certain species of them have white and grey wing feathers that make great fletching for my hunting arrows. Spotted Owl tastes a lot better.
