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.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I would prefer that the marine mammal protection act is repealed and we treat harbor seals, sea lions, etc.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.
