We need to take a hunting course and have a valid hunting license as well. Not just anyone can go do this. We need a firearms acquisition permit. We need to provide a copy of our house insurance. They want the geese off the land, as they are destroying crops. Some private land owners just shoot them and bury them. We hunt, ethically harvest under our limit of geese, and we eat them all. If we do not hunt them, the ministry of environment kills the eggs. They used to destroy the eggs, but the geese will lay more. So now they go out and spray all the eggs; the eggs die and the goose sits on them but they never hatch."
