    Just read through this. bottom line until we change the law our game animals are always going to be classed as pests.

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Am actually planning a trip down South to have a go so hopefully we run into a few.
    Good to hear they are still running about.

    Thar are no longer an offical pest species, the supplementary paper on the arms act lists pest species wallaby, rabbits, hares and canada geese. Goats are not mentioned.
