Cormorant predator

Recommended Posts

Out of interest do any of you guys cull Cormorant, these predators will take 1lb-4lb + of fish per day, I look after 28 lakes & rivers , my culling program is strictly control under licence ..rifles of choice depending on which water I'm on , 17Hmr ,204..223..

Hi don’t do cormorants as I believe it’s 1 mating pair per year ? Not quite sure of cull specific. I have over the years dealt and culled Canada geese, done specific culls in large numbers.

rifles used .22 Hornet with moderator or 223 with moderator using 40 gr Bee head with very good results. On odd occasions used 12g semi auto .

 Cheers Nick

good morning,i dont cull anything on water but i imagine that ricochet are a major problem even with light fast bullets and being on fisheries that are fairly close to housing/industrial units etc and of course fishermen.are the licences only issued during the closed season for course fishing/trout and salmon etc. very good sport but not without many problems.i wish you good luck.

I have culled cormorants in the past, the fishery i did it for had a licence to cull four a year, all shot on the water with a 22-250, no issues with ricochet,
