You know you can't eat them thangs James? There's a bunch over here but probably not the most. some of the guys do fish the trees under them though.

Livingston has to be in the top 5 of the rankings if not number 1.

The cormorants prefer shad and Livingston is loaded with shad every year.

Amazingly, the most damaging cormorants I've ever seen were down along the shoreline of the Bay of Campeche. The mangroves there are actually "bleached" white with cormorant excrement and many are dead. Looks like the very same bird we have here. Unbelievable.

It sure helll don't taste like a turkey but I've eaten them before. Back when me and my dad was riding out Hurricane Ellisa back in the 80. We were stuck on the Bolivar peninsula with no food. Commrant tasted really good to us back then. Don't know about now thou ? TPWD should make it legal to hunt these birds to keep their numbers down. I don't see why we can eat wild game bird and not these birds. You never know untill you tasted it. I think well seasoned cooked would taste like any other gamey birds.

We get a ton of them at Arrowhead. I have never seen an animal constantly carp for hours on end like they can. If you are on a lake and find them sitting on white logs, you will catch plenty of catfish.

Any bird that eats fish taste terrible, but I still think we should kill as many as possible.

They are the wild pigs of the air.
