    Default Nuisance permit regulations?

    A farmer who's property I hunt on has a nuisance permit for geese on one of his corn fields and is allowed to cull them year round as a result. He's willing to allow me to take geese on this property and give me a copy of the permit. But my question is if I am not the property owner am I allowed to participate in the cull? Are there regulations on keeping meat if so?
    I'll be calling the MNR about this but I'm wondering if anyone had experience with this since I'm not confident in the MNR giving me a straight answer.

    Why don't you use the ASK A CO feature site.

    It’s best to check with either Can. Wildlife Services or MNR. Years ago, I shot geese under the authority of a nuisance permit as an agent. At that time, we couldn’t use the birds shot, but I think that has changed.

    The permit should contain the details if not should have the name and contact info of who signed off on it. Your acting as an agent so should be good only thing hate to shoot them and not be able to use them.

    From what I've heard, you cant utilized the meat. I don't know this for fact, its just something I've heard. Its such a waste if you cant use the meat.

    Once you have crossed your t's and dotted your i's and its all legal and above board whether you can keep the meat or not go enjoy yourself you are preforming a great service to the land owner by saving crops, time and wasted money. Think of it as shooting clay pigeons with out having to buy the clays and it will also be good wing shooting practice for the next season when you can keep the birds if you're unable to keep them now.

    Probably should look into the permit first, geese are a migratory bird and therefore are outside of the COs wheelhouse, not that they may not know but it is an obscure thing for most.

    You can become an agent of the farmer, you will be listed by name as such on the application. Keep the permit on you and follow the rules. Some places you cannot take the birds, some you can, some you have to dispose of on the farm, etc, etc, they are not all the same.

    The application should have contact info on it, at least when I was an agent it did but that was years ago now and things have probably changed some.

    Good luck, let me tell you, it is weird having a rifle for groundhogs and a 12ga with steel shot both in your vehicle ready as you go for a drive past your buddies place in July.

    Ok so update. I called the local MNR office and they told me that for migratory nuisance the Canadian wildlife service handles that. I left a message at the ontario location and will try to get a hold of them today. MNR said you cannot keep meat of nuisance animals but I'm wondering if the wildlife service has different regulations on that.
