Hi all I was on my permission today
Was having a brilliant days shoot with a couple of rooks one pigeon and a miss on the biggest hare iv ever seen .. Anyways back to the point
The farmer has asked me to get rid of the geese that are on his farm in any ways possible
Anyways the first time I was there I just spotted the geese as they were off and didn't come back that day .
Today i seen them again just as they were taking off so I held my shot and let them circle just as they were coming in to land
I heard this voice and a dog so I held off the
shot . The geese had gone by this time . So I got up spoke to the bloke and he asked if I was going to shoot the geese
" I said yes in a polite manner "
" he said well we like to see the geese around here so could I leave them "
" I asked him if he owned the field or dose he now the owner if he didn't "
He said yes we keep an eye out for the farmer on his land
" I showed him my grant of permission and explained that the farmer wants them gone as they are shitting all over the place are wrecking his field .. He then said well they are out of season and I should leave them be as they aren't nesting ... !!!!!!!!
You sound as "green" as piss mate and typical of somebody who's just got a licence, "Geese" is a broad term, do you not know the species or type ??? the seasons and respect for them are what make you a sportsmen, get to know your quarry and don't just blast anything that moves or eventually you will be prosecuted for shooting a protected bird or mammal, its a shame any daft c*nt can get a licence without there being any kind of species test or knowledge for seasons, it doesn't take long to kill everything that moves on a farm out of season and come winter there is nothing to shoot, if everyone shot like you the countryside would be a barren desolate landscape and by the way I am a full time "pest controller" that adheres to rules and regs that keep control humane, W.A.W.
