Squirrel shooting with air rifle

Recommended Posts

Permission will come mate,, just keep at it,, and think outside the box,,

 

Cemetries, orchards,, private gardens, resevoirs and fisheries, livery stables, market gardens, allotments, water pumping stations, driving ranges, scrapyards,,,

 

Not all the best permission is on farms,, my best air rifle work has been in an orchard this year,, 45 / 50 rabbits from a strip 60 mtrs long,, it`s alongside a rail rack,, and NO ONE does rail tracks,, so the rabbits are a constant pest

Thanks for the advice [bANNED TEXT], I'm on the outskirts of Glasgow and really not that much around , I've used gallons of diesel in my search further away to no avail, I will however ask around driving ranges etc but not holding much hope

I'm not sure if it's just our areas mate but I'm just finding they don't seem that bothered and worry more about health and safety ?? As a site agent I fully understand there concerns but the way I see it , if your away from the general public and respect any landowners wishes as to where and what they tell you to shoot , then what's the problem??

I don`t even worry about the public bud,, one of my places borders the busiest shopping retail park in the area,, just keep it low key,,

As a newbie to this forum I'm obviously mistaken to think that this was a forum where everyone tries to help each other ????

so where does it end, you pay for it then someone offers more, feck that merry go round. ive moved houses and areas 17 times in 47 years and always managed to find permision every time ive moved, were i live now ive been here 6 years and ive got every farm in the area. i dont pay for any of it. i offer a service and ensure i do what i offer

The way I see it you should find some sort of permission before you buy a gun,then you can't complain about loss of money if you can't find any,and if you do find some you can get the gun and know you have somewhere to go....

Common sense helps.

      Looking for 2 syndicate places for 2018/2019 season. Happy to travel around Staffordshire but anything around Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, North Wales. 2 x very experienced shooters, really easy going and friendly. Just looking for a syndicate to get involved with to add to some driven days we do. Ideally all types of game and the ability to shoot during the summer months too.... but not essential.
      or any rough shooting opportunities
