This thread is making me laugh ,basically there is little change in the way the new license works from the old one ,we can all read it ourselves but some here are happy to have ago at David Basc for his accurate answer.
So if a court case comes up they can say "but Basc said it would be ok its all there fault " come on READ the license yourselves dont be so lazy.
If a Jackdaw flies over and you kill it when you didnt have to then the choice is yours surely.
Out Pheasant shooting on a quiet drive when a Pigeon flies over without thinking we kill it and the sad unfortunate bird ends up in the bag, legal or not its your choice you cant expect Basc or anyone else to tell you if its right or wrong, in my opinion it would be killing for fun the same as the Pheasants.Dont get me wrong i have done exactly this but what good has killing that one Pigeon done ? pest control ,?crop protection ?you would be hard pressed to say either in a court .
Basc and the other shooting orgaisations have worked hard and successfully over the last few months they cant send people out to stand with us when we shoot we should all be able to read and understand what is written ourselves as responsible adults with shotguns i would hope so anyway.
