BASC Say carry on pest control


Recommended Posts


Has anyone on here actually applied for an individual licence to shoot any other of the pests that were taken off the General Licence and have yet to be reinstated?

I applied for one to deal with a feral pigeon job and recieved confirmation of my application but have heard nothing since.

The G,L,s are the same but they <BASC> are saying it means you can carry on as before providing non lethal is tried first and didnt work  ie you meet the terms of the licence by trying bangers ,rattles noise etc first then you can shoot them .The actual "new licence " is the same but they are "saying" yes you can now shoot pigeons and eat and sell them

.And you can shoot crows and goose using their respective licence ,following the conditions first as many people all said can i cant i and do i need a specific licence so BASC are saying that DEFRA say yes you can .confusing but they say yes atb

Just seen this development on another forum ,BASC need to wake up and stop reacting and start acting .3 people with a political agenda to ban shooting need to be in the public eye asap.Stop waiting for them and start attacking them first ,highlight the failed previous attempts by the trio to ban everything and show its not a legal challenge but personal .

And get some publicity out in defence of what we do

If the judge sees that wild justice isn't and are solely a small click of antis with a political agenda their case has no legal basis whatever .So come on BASC  get on it or soon no members No job ,who's going to pay 60 quid a year for a poxy magazine and nothing else ?

I been using my bangers to scare them.

Scares them very well. To well sometimes, oops.

Yes bangers can work at times but that method just moves them on to some other unfortunate farmer and they are expensive to keep running day after day,I've have shot some good numbers on fields that have have a working gas gun on and running,they do need some lethal control to reduce the numbers, flock sizes  can get into there hundreds or even thousands we've all seen them,one farmer a few years ago that I know nearly lost all his 500 acres of rape in winter to pigeons in a very short space of time he was forced into putting out a advert in a local paper desperately asking for help controlling them he had gas guns out as well at that time, fortunately I was local and able to help,something that bunny huggers don't realize.

Not trying to be funny, but where does that say carry on pest control? It's exactly the same as it was last week. 

Quite, if actually says things are being delayed and its frustrating and BASC are trying!

Carry on by all means within the terms of the latest GL's and Individual personal applications as required!

Got it!

Apparently, birds don't like hairspray, perfume and aftershave.

So our farmers need to find old stocks of brute or oldspice and spray it on the land.

It may destroy the bees and essential microbes in the soil but that's never bothered them before any how.

I tested the theory last night by smuggling out with the mrs hair spray and spraying a bird's nest in the noxious substance to deter the magpies from approaching the nest.

To my surprise this morning the chicks were not moving much but no magpie had been near them so although my tests are in its infancy it does seem to work.

So I'm off to b&m to buy some cheap hair spray and this weekend I will be searching for birds nests and spraying them and the nest to protect them .

This just highlights that these lunatics will NEVER be satisfied. They just don't get it, refuse to be told & bury heads in sand. We need our government to get everything watertight, publish the new rules & tell these snowflake hippies to get a f***ing grip and stop wasting everyone's time.

Good grief !!   A like minded soul .  I just don't understand how so  many people can't see that basic are run as a business and are /and have been a totally useless fraud for many years. If the people in the organisation were in any other commercial outfit they would have been p 45d a long time ago. They ought to be working like the Nra does in America . Politicians are put on notice that their actions will result in no votes. And companies are also on notice of boycotting of their products.  We cut our own throats or surrender before a shot is fired. Basic are more concerned with trying to get people to buy raffle tickets than geting ahead of the game. I'd like to rant a lot , lot more but I'm sure that kwis and his mates have the next attack well planned already. Basics Bill & Ben are well advanced on their menu for their christmas party.

Ps.  Basic are eighty quid not sixty

      Morning all
       
        Apologies if this has been covered previously, I have obviously missed it if it has been.
         I would just like to ask if anyone has given the A-TEC shot gun silencer a real test on the pigeons ( Full day). If you have can you let me know how it effected your shooting, if at all, or did you get to grips with it quite quick. I would be looking to use standard 32g no6 loads.
        The permission we currently shoot is shrinking rapidly due to new housing estates popping up so I am looking at all options with a view to upsetting as few people as possible. I would also be looking to use on Geese if they are OK , and I am aware that they recommend a max load of 43g through the A-TEC.
          Thanks in advance

      Hello, I've recently moved to the Norfolk area and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to getting permission to shoot on some local landowners land. I'm from and currently serve in the british army and know how to shoot well with my own kit. I do have some hunting experience and i'm also a BASC member to which comes with insurance. Any help would be appreciated.

      Just been out for my first experiance pigeon shooting with a shooting friend of mine,  had an awesome evening although I’m told it was a quiet one! And definitely got the bug.
      Got me wondering though, what are people’s experiences with their gun dogs and long term exposure to the noise.  Have any of you more experienced hunters seen any effects of this or found a way to protect their canine partners whilst on the shoot? 
      Looking forward to hearing some experiences from folks. 
      Cheers

      Went to a friends place in Pwllheli ,for a camping weekend and as a nice freeby was invited to 2 hours shooting on a field of flattened barley.Well started with a recon and 5 pigeons and 30plus jackdaws were in and out of this corner patch so we sussed a place for the hide and agreed 4pm start.
      Trouble is a working farmer doesnt do time so we started at 4.30 ,set up the deeks into the wind and got the hide <landrover tarp> up in a gorse hedge and waited .Well bloomin birds wouldnt play at all ,we could hear the Jackdaws to our left and the odd high high flyer went over ignoring the deeks so out came the flask ,that did a trick.
      Up the hill comes a lone bird down he went first shot a lone Jackdaw so no blank here thankfully.Ten minutes later a skinny squab of a pigeon starts swooping over the deeks and he got to join the Jackdaw .Despite the extra 2 decoys nothing else showed before we reluctantly packed away but at least the ferret got fed that night and a grand job he made off his free tea .
