    Canada geese

    ok lads a bit of a dilemma

    I have been asked to remove some Canada geese from the area of one of the lakes near me, and I said no bother, so I had a check done with BASC and I can just crack on,

    the dilemma is there are goslings now and wanted to ask what you would do, the numbers are large enough to cause a lot of damage to a SSSI area that needs to be protected.

    would you wait to give the young ones time to grow a bit more or just get on with it,

    thanks

    bob.

    Would it be possible to shoot the goslings first?

    That's how I do it.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not using it in a fruit salad.

    Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they never get it wrong.

    Goslings are pretty independent from birth and grow on pretty rapidly,and I think they form multi family creches like some other ducks/geese do, so I wouldn't worry to much if you take any of the adults.

    I was going to mention not using lead on wildfowl, but googling the legislation, it looks like it specifically refers to lead shot from a shot gun...so I guess you are okay with a rifle...(assuming you were going to use a rifle)

    I'd crack on asap!
