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.

Out turring yesterday off petty harbour. Skunked. Seen about 20 birds all on the wing and only one in shooting range and my buddy missed. Of course I was on the motor, big sea on.

Back from Turr Hunting, 6 turrs in 3 hours, very rough sea, winds from the North West 30-35 kms. Birds all cleaned, gun cleaned, hearts and livers cooked and 2 turrs in the oven for supper. It gets no better... (could have been more birds I spose) lol.
