im working on this farm and they asked me if I knew someone to do pest control on their and their dads farms.
I replied yes me then we went for a drive about on monday to show me the boundaries and the do and don'ts
there is about 2000acres and last night when I went to do abit of shooting i got there about 7 and set the gun up went for a drive about 8:30
it was all going well shot 7 rabbits and 3 pigeons then i was on the way to go have a cuppa at the house at about 11pm just as i pulled out of the gate and the police come out of nowhere with blue light on so I got out to to see what they wanted he said you're taking game without permission .so I got the permission letter out and he laughed and said did you write that . I replied no you can check.He said don't you worry im going to .so off we went we got to the house to see tim out with his dogs the police aksed tim if he give me permission .he replied yes so that was that we get back to the truck then he sed just got to give your truck a look over so by this point i was well pissed but what can you do
i will tell you what you can do,although its not required by law!
is phone your local police station ask them to put you through to the control room.
and ask for a URN number ( U
tell them you are doing some pest control at the said address,using an Air Rifle!
they will take your details,and index number.and in return you get that number.this way you just tell the police when they turn up the number.and they will leave you to it!!
that's what i do, mainly when i am at permissions that are close to the public!
good luck on your next outing!!
