I wonder if they'd make it a special permit draw or something....I recall my ancestors killing them for sustenance so I need 1 to continue to exercise my rights. :chuckle:

Would you really eat one?

Hopefully it's good.  700 lbs of nasty sea lion would be bummer.

I would and then have a sweet fur jacket made!

I also wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being a token to the tribes as a way to discreetly take care of the issue. One I would be in favor of.

Remember that thousands of cornmeratns were managed on the Columbia by the feds... while I may prefer Sportmen handle it, a compromise may be necessary. A move in the right direction is much better that my Verizon of the ideal.

I would prefer that the marine mammal protection act is repealed and we treat harbor seals, sea lions, etc. no differently than any other game species with an appropriate hunting season.  I will take this as a consolation prize though, we need any kind of management we can get.

Heck yes! I got the bowfishing bows setup with a float for big game fish. We would have to attach it to like a ancor ball for a float but man that would be a kick!!!! :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

If it were to pass and that is a big if it will probably go to APHIS. Tribes might stand a slim chance if they wanted to push it. I think anyone else is very unlikely.
But makes me wonder about what to do with one. Eating, seems like poor table fare but maybe. I would give it a try. Maybe when Plat gets his he can hold a barbecue and I could crash the party for a taste.
Hide on a sea lion must be like 4 inches thick. Not sure what use it would have. Recaps? :chuckle:
Render it out for shoe grease. Probably be enough for everyone on here.

I would most definitely like to eat harbor seal or sea lion, that was a staple for many people in the history of our species. Not sure if I would like the taste, but only one way to find out.

If the fat is tasty (I have heard it is), a family could be set for quite a while for cooking, baking, etc.

A big, thick, warm pelt like that could be a lot of fun to play around with.
