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.

Best kind. Yeah I'm looking for one to get out of a jam if ever need be.

I bought a uniden on Amazon.com. cost me about half price on one here. It's waterproof and has 1, 2.5 & 5 watt rating.
I'll get the exact model for you tomorrow. Hand helds are not as good as the mounted ones but it's better than not having one at all.
By the way mine does not float.

The birds I cleaned had a lot of krill in them.

Ones I cleaned today had nothing in them funny enough.

Good sign of turrs yesterday. Plenty of bait around so they may hold inside a bit.

Few turrs getting around. We had 36 today. A lot of people shot their limit.
