Comorants

Can we shoot those greasy things? I never really cared to waste a shell at them but I've been seeing a ton of them around and I know the effects they've taken on the 1000 islands regions. Just want to clarify if we can whack them if the ducks are slow. Thanks

Don't listen to him. Your not allowed to shoot hawks. Don't forget you have to call and report all the comorants you shoot to the PCG regional office in the area you hunted.

Cormorants are protected in Pa. Some states you can kill them, but not here. While I laughed at the guys who responded, we can't let anybody asking these types of things walk away thinking it's okay to do. Next we'll post up 'Yeah, some idiotsw were blasting away at the cormorants up on pymo'.

thank you Don, i do not appreciate the smarta$$ answers from everyone else. I was unsure of something and asked people who would inform me of it not just put up BS, i have seen the environmental damage the cormorants can cause but was unaware of their protection in our state. smh at the guys on here who would rather screw around with another duck hunter than just give an answer.. think some of you need to grow up

Dont worry Dallashunter,

You'll notice alot of professionals on here that would rather bust someones chops than help them out.

Especially the ones that have most likely broken the law in the past.

Come on! What's a comorant or two between friends?

Every year I see guys shooting at them. Must be one tough bird because I see few knocked down. I thnk up in Michigan or Minnesota they are legal to shoot. I think I remember one of those states letting you shoot them because of all the damage they are doing to the fisheries. If you ever watch them real close they will eat so much that they can't fly. They will reguritate the stomach contents and than be able to fly and go right back to eating again.

Like seagulls they are protected, and like seagulls I would love to unload on them everytime I see them.
