Cormorants

Recommended Posts

Went out fishing with my dad today and while in the back of devil's cove we heard a bunch of shots... probably 50-100 when we went out there was a boat with some people with shot guns and some people on the island with a cottage with shotguns... or so it looked... we went and it looked like many dead birds floating... no idea if they were doing it legally or if they just had the balls to try it in broad daylight... anyway when we left the sheriff's boat was just pulling up... if it ws legal I need to know how to do it

Cormorants can be legally shot if there is a piece of privately owned property that they are destroying. The property owner has to get permit from Dec to and it is only for a certain number of birds. My buddy is usually with those guys blowing up the birds. I'm sure he will read this post and chime in with more specifics and possibly pics

Yeah the birds **** all over the trees and it kills them so the land owner gets a permit to kill a certain number every year.

Oh believe me I know what they do... I just always thought nothing could be done... I'm glad some people get permits!

Yeah it was fun today... but they are killing all his trees . No trees no island. He has a permit from The feds. The floaters are picked up . Maybe a cripple or 2 but can't chase them down with all the boats and his regs that he has to follow.

How to get a permit.... spend a lot of money for a island and hope cormorants land on it and make it smaller and smaller every year.

I just shoot and watch them fall.

    • Sandy Creek Cormorants

      On Saturday it looked like a big flock of cormorants got blown off the lake and took up residence in the creek. In the frogwater section between East Fork Marine and the lake, I estimated 150 birds. I'd never seen that before in the past 30 years. They've been in the lower section since then. Yesterday evening, I launched and motored towards the lake, and there were probably 80 birds sitting on the spit to the East of the creek, along the East bay......

      Took my youngest out and was hopeing to get into some perch. Launched at baldeagle and motored to yanty. There were 5 eagles and more cormorants than I have ever seen except for lil gallo up north, which they leveled. There were proly couple hundred hope this isn't a trend.

I knew they were around, but the south end of the lake was infested with them, from Treman to Myers and beyond.. big flocks everywhere, diving, resting, flying.. Great,... with all the problems on these lakes, this is just what we needed,.,, I hope they eat billions of  gobies, and choke as they are doing it..

      Hunting Nuisance Birds Jim Birchard, Bayshore Broadcasting Corporation It could soon be open season of Cormorants all year long in Ontario. An Eastern Ontario Liberal MPP has introduced a bill at the legislature that would allow people to shoot the nuiscance birds at any time. Ernie Parsons says in his riding alone, Prince Edward Hastings, which includes the Bay of Quinte, the Cormorant population has balooned. He says 10 years ago there were about 300 breeding pairs but that has soared to
