Get your Crow License here....

Recommended Posts

I've applied for the licence but am struggling to understand where wood pigeons come into the equation.

Can I still shoot them, or have they got to be on crops?

The above licence is for shooting  crows to protect livestock only , it will NOT cover you for shooting anything else or crop protection .

the licences cover the shooting of birds for crop protection are hopefully being added from tomorrow onwards ( Monday )

General licence now issued for crow only.  No general Corvid licence which is barmy.

The only licence issued so far is about as useful as tits on a bull.

Not Packham, but his RSPB buddies Spain & Juniper. How is this licensing issue a matter for NE? Surely it should be DEFRA that manages the control of pest species.

It doesn't help the cause when attention seeking publicity whores post on their 'English Shooting' pages of Social Media that they've just discovered Hunting and what good fun Pigeon Shooting is...................

On the one hand everyone is saying it is necessary and has a good reason, then others jump in saying what jolly fun it is........people, that is, who publicly declare they've had their FAC and SGC taken away as they are deemed unsuitable.

The shooting fraternity are their own worst enemies. IMHO

Gove, Packham, Avery, Spain & Juniper. What a rosy, cosy relationship. As highlighted already, by Fieldsports Britain.

To be fair my MP has been quite responsive, forwarding the correspondence from Gove as it arrives, hot off the press. Completely useless of course, but then he is a Tory and a Sir...

DEFRA are now taking over the Licence Mick. 👍
