Thread: Electronic roe calls.

  1. #1

    Electronic roe calls.

    What's the general view on electric calls for rutting roe ? I'm personally against the things & watching the shooting show broadcasting their use to me is in poor taste. Maybe I'm old fashioned ?

    Poor taste, why?
    It didn't seem to work though.

    Electronic callers are illegal to use to call and shoot any bird or animal other than Fox. You can use an electronic call for photographic purposes only.

    I did the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust Fox Control Course aprrox three years ago and last year their Corvid Control course and on each course was informed that the use of electronic callers to call and shoot any bird or animal other than Fox is illegal on both courses. Many years ago i bought a U Caller and this had the same information on instructions within the box.

    checked with BASC today re this episode http://www.theshootingshow.tv/the-sh...r-crop-advice/and they confimed it was not illegal.

    i have been looking into looking at an electronic call to see for myself whether it works or not. reading and listening there doesn't seem to be much of a rut this year.
