  1. what about shooting a few with the 22lr would this be ok as it will be much quieter as there is an industrial estate across the way, or does the law state shotgun only ?? if so what no cartridges
  2. How can we stop them, they fly in land in the pond and sleep on the islands we cant get too
  3. They will not be disturbed they are almost tame, they come so close you can almost grab them, we need to do something as they have taken over the pools i cant believe how many have come this year its crazy
  4. So does that mean they can be controlled all year or only up to 31st July by the means you mention in your post
  5. @clay shooter thank you very much for such a detailed explanation i really appreciste it One other thing is does the GL28 licence forbid shooting geese after 31st July
  6. Do you have to apply for a GL28 general licence then as this was one bit i didnt understand, its not like the general licence for pigeons and crows then
  7. I read that but how do you prove you are culling under this criteria, would the HUGE amount of bird c&@p all over the fishing platforms count towards this
  8. My local fishing club has a huge issue with canada geese taking over 3 small ponds, there are so many of them the place is un fishable, is there any way of getting rid of these pests Can they be shot under the canada geese general licence (GL28), I have had a read of this licence but im not very good with taki g this stuff in and although i have read it i dont understand it, if they can be shot what time of year can this be done Any genuine help would be very much appreciated so once we are out of lockdown something can be done
  9. Thanks again all culling will be done in line with both mine and the fisheries licences
  10. Thanks guys i will take a trip down the gun shot tomorrow and get some cartridges I also have a 22lr so this could be an option as back stop is not a problem, if i set up right i can shoot into a high bank which was created when the ponds were dug out years ago Would a 22lr be ok for a chest shot ??
  11. What size shot as i have read they are hard to knock down
  12. Hi All Can anyone offer me any advise on the best way to shoot cormorants, I have been asked by a small fishing club to control the cormorants on their 2 ponds as the fish are being eaten so quickly they really need it sorting. I have been added onto the Defra licence by the club so all legal and above board. Thing is I have never shot cormorants and would like some advise from anyone who has culled them on the best approach Thanks in advance
