Shooting permission

Recommended Posts

Guest houndblair

Well me and a friend used to shoot on a farm that i ferret, untill the farmers wife decided she did not like air rifles and people of our age using them and would prefer us to stick to ferreting. We have had very good shooting in there with crows/woodies rabbits etc And need some advice/tips for asking people about shooting permission on there land!

hi i have had the same problem as you with asking for the permission, i got loads of rely good infro from the lads on here and i put it into use. the best thing to do is aproach the people face to face, be polite and allways thank them for their time ect even if they dont give you it, its allways worth just being polite. the best thing you can do is just ask aslong you can prove you are responseable ect there should be no problem. it could be worth telling were else you were shooting at ?? to prove you have had experince and not just gun ho. hope all go well and [bANNED TEXT] can get some ideas from this.

all the best tim

hello mate you dont say how old you are but you would benefit from some sort of shooting insurance :yes: this would show prospective permission granters you are responsible and have insurance incase of an accident the NGO are the cheapest at £25 per year with a five million liability once you are insured ask your farmer again explaining about your cover you may get the shooting back you never know ;)

Yeah, but I think you need to be supervised? Not too arsed myself but I'm thinking of your insurance- they must have asked your age?

Mind you - in two months it's not an issue :)

I need to check on this, but i believe that the minimum age has just gone up [or is going up] to 18 years old, for airguns, crossbows and knives [violent crime reduction bill]
