    re shooting on general licence


    Does anyone actively shoot gulls on their shot gun licence, if so what ones and what are the criteria.

    I have land which has a lot of gulls on it whilst its been cut....

    are they doing any harm?

    Im pretty sure its black backed gull etc but you can check the list on the basc site.

    Has anyone ever tasted seagull? I watched a programme where Gordon Ramsey was on one of the remote Scottish Islands cooking seagull, they left it soaking in brine for a few days before boiling it whole... The most minging thing he'd ever tasted.
    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"

    christ it lives ha ha

    noted mate, i didnt want to make that assumption.
    i was talking to a lad of numerous years as the say and he reckoned that shooting them is like a black art....not many practice it and those that do are frowned on.

    hope the calves are all sorted and lifes returning to normal...

    any heads to do or are they still roaming around waiting to be shot.

    just a quick note to all, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SEA GULL!!!

    Lesser black backed gull, herring gull, black headed gull, greater blacked backed gull, Fulmur, etc etc YES..


    Its almost as bad as calling a fallow buck a STAG or a Roe doe a hind. GET IT RIGHT LADS!
