    No, not illegal. Some would say unsporting, but if you're not doing it for sport, that hardly matters.
    Other than Canadas tough, you must still observe the relevant closed seasons.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Put us a link up Boydy. I can find the bit about not using high cap semi-autos, but can't see anywhere saying use of a rifle is illegal.

    This weeks Shooting Times has an article about decoying Canadas on stubble, might be worth a read.

    dont no how to do it, I never said it was illegal, but to look for your self as u'd be in for a shock (1) Rfle / gun Not CAPABLE of holding more than 1 in the chamber and two in the mag so that means a single shot rifle or one with a 2 shot mag(2)no semi auto (3) bullet type i was trying to point out by Law you cannot just stoke up and go there is a LOT of red tape if you want to play it by the Book. and it is only a matter of time before someone is made a example off Due to the hassle about Geese and Rifle abuse. Was only trying to help

    You need the specific condition for Geese on your f.a.c., I have Canada's on mine & you need to be working within the guidlines of the general licence, We use .223 with six round box mags.
