I approached ODFW with idea of intimidating the Cormorants with an RC boat. They not only thought it was a good idea, they has given me a radio controlled boat and permission to try and chase the Cormorants off the pond. I've been out there a few times now and it works pretty good. They definitely don't like it. After chasing a few it seems that just having the boat sit out on the water helps. Unfortunately the boat battey life is only about 15 minutes and it takes 40 minutes to recharge it. ODFW is getting me more batteries so I can stay on the water more. It goes without saying it is a huge kick in butt to make those fish eaters get off the water and hopefully go somewhere else to feed. I also have permission to do the same at Alton Baker.
