Do you not have to be licensed to have these?

By whom? Your question implies you do, so please spill the beans.

Slimjim - is this too big to courier do you think?  If not, I could possibly be interested, as we have a real magpie problem this year. Do you have any photos, or a manufacturer's reference?


Fsmnutter - the answer to your question is both yes and no. Their USE is covered under the general license conditions (i.e. a license that generally applies as long as you meet those conditions; you don't have to 'get' one specially). HOWEVER, one of the conditions of the general license is that you must register your trap with your local police wildlife officer. You also have to adhere to the other conditions of the general license, e.g. ensuring any call birds have food and water at all times, checking the trap regularly etc etc. There's plenty of information about this online (BASC etc) if you want to find out more.

Thanks @Womble, that's cleared it up for me, we have a friendly gamekeeper that has put their trap on our land for our pesky magpies and had explained the rules he was following just I hadn't quite grasped it clearly!
I wasn't trying to be awkward @Slimjim just wanted to make sure whoever bought it is aware of the rules and doesn't get you or themselves in trouble ????

Hi Jim, thanks for the PM.


This post is just to say that I'm not taking the trap (postage too expensive unfortunately), so it's still available.  Try this link for more information on the general licenses and how to use larsen traps etc legally. It's all common sense really, and the registration process was very straightforward when I did it a few years ago.
