I have a major starling problem on my 40 ac farm in kuna idaho. I want to work on reducing them and protect my crops. I don't have a hunting license currently but I was wondering if its legal to shoot the non protected non game birds.
Starlings are classified in Idaho as a predator and can be controlled by almost any means, but a license or permit is required for the individual doing the control action.
However the depredation control folks at Wildlife Services (208-373-1630) can help control migratory wildlife which are depredating on crops.
