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.

Few in St. Mary's Bay I was told. No real big amount but you pick up 20 or so. Should soon hit everywhere.

Hey fellow turr hunters any birds around anywhere

Comment by Peter Emberley on February 17, 2018 at 9:49pm

Some tinkers in CBS & Trinity Bay.

Its not a boat limit. Its a personal limit. If i just killed 20 and i have 20 in my freezer thats a limit of 40 for me. If i eat 5 i can them kill 5 more. That's the lay of the rules.

Me and my son dont need 80 birds between us lol. We do give a few to people that cannot get out themeslves. Specially the older folks who grew up eating them.

That is a good question Shawn. On page 18 of the hunter and trapper guide it states that the limit is 20 birds per person with a possession limit of 40. I do not see anything about having 80 if four people are aboard the boat. It used to state that the boat limit was 60. Some clarification may be a good idea on this. I do not personally think that it is a good idea to go beyond 60 per boat.
