They are unfortunatly protected..

Shouldn't be protected when they swim that far up river.

The dam is about a 30 minute drive from my place, go up there a lot to see friends mostly. Sea Lions have been thicker than flies on bullshit. Population is pretty much unchecked, especially since they are protected.

If it wasn't a felony punishable by years in prison, I think there'd be a lot of dead sea lions by now. And these things are HUGE as well.

You know, from Hamilton Mountain, I bet a .50 BMG would take out a sea lion... At least, the last time I was up there it was a nice clear view of the Dam

ETA:

There is NOTHING that the beaucrats on this side of the river can or will do about it...

Not to mention, both Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell are both tree hugging hippy liberals.

Commercial fisherman and Idians have been using the 30.06 for years, place the round right it is quick and efficient.

The news showed guys with 12 gauge bird guns and slugs taking them out from a small boat.

Some fedcoats look a lot like sea-lions be careful to ID your target

I thought it was lawful for Aboriginal Americans to hunt them ? why can't they go little bighorn on their stinking hides ? is it no in their interest as well ?

Cute? Not hurting anyone? Up close, when you have their food in your hands, they are vicious. They have tried to bite my hand while fishing the Columbia and trying to get an undersized sturgeon shaken off the hook. Tell Kristen Zubel I said "Nuke the bastards".

Remember Herchel? That damn thing was trapped several times and shipped to California only to be back at the locks in three days. I say kill the damn things. Keep killing them till there are no more at the dam. It's not like there is a shortage of sea lions.
