Murre (turr) hunters:


All hunters must purchase and be in possession of a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit and a Habitat Conservation Stamp while hunting murres. This hunt is only open to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. Murres are the only migratory bird that can be legally hunted from a power boat. Any occupant of a boat who shoots or retrieves murres, or anyone who operates a boat to pursue murres, is hunting as defined in the Migratory Birds Regulations and is required to hold a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, non-toxic shot must be used to hunt migratory birds, except for murres (turrs). For those birds still hunted with lead shot, remove the lead shot before cooking whenever possible in order to reduce your exposure to contaminants.

in the rules and reg it says you are allowed 20 per day and 40 in your possesion per person,if you have three guys in a boat does that mean your allowed 60 turrs for that day,or is it 40.

I like turr d'lorange. I pick all my birds by hand the old fashioned way with the scalding hot water but not quite boiling. If they are soaked for to long the skin will tear to easily. I freeze them by the brace in a 2 liter ice cream container. I fill the container with water and staple the cover. They keep perfectly like this. Getting back to my preferred method of cooking, I cover the birds with freshly squeezed orange juice. Tangerines work well. I take the pulp mixed with onion and put it in the cavity. My dad used to stuff them with dressing. I like a few strips of fat pork on the bird, a cut up onion, salt & pepper for seasoning and add enough water to keep from drying and of course to make a drop of gravy. Bake at 350 degrees for about three hours or so and take the cover off for the last half hour to make the skin crispy. Another way I like to cook turrs when they are skinned is to cut the birds in half leaving the breast bone intact and the legs separate. I usually put four in a roaster like this and add some seasoning, onion, a few strips of fat pork and water to make a good portion of gravy. I make a pastry to cover the whole lot for the last 40 minutes of cooking. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Loves them fried with potatoes

Do you bottle them? I loves them bottled but it takes a good few to make up a bottle. You only get the brest and legs.
Usually cooks 5 for a meal, 2 for Pete, 2 for me and 1 for father. This is our first year with a picker. What a difference in the cooked bird. Never eat a skinned one again.
