Recommended Posts

Beaters day today and my daughter shot her first keepers day and got her first bird. She was really safe and with really high birds all day did really well.

I'm not judging but maybe this should not be shown.!! Shooting over a road when there is a legal requirement to distance, maybe I'm wrong. Anyway I'm glad she got the shot. Jok.

For information of the budding lawyers-

 

In England & Wales it is an offence without lawful authority or reasonable excuse to discharge any firearm within fifty feet of the centre of a highway which consists of or comprises a carriageway, and in consequence a user of the carriageway is injured, interrupted or endangered. [section 161(2) of the Highways Act 1980 as amended]. It is important to remember that the discharge of a firearm is not prohibited in itself. It must also be proved that there was an injury, or that someone’s passage was interrupted or interfered with e.g. they have been forced to make a detour.

A commonly misunderstood piece of legislation!

 

There's nothing demonstrably illegal about that photo, public or private road.

 

 

Nice one, well done to daughter and father. :thumbs:

Self policing is what will lead to our demise not the antis.

 

Great photo I dreamed my daughter would be doing that, can I ask how old she is? Mine is 11 next week :)

 

Cheers!

Thanks

 

She is 12. She has been beating on two local shoots for the last 4 years . She knows the drives , can keep the line and face thick cover. She loves it , she can despatch birds , load the game cart and work the dog.

This pic was from keepers day and she was mentored by a close family friend who is an experienced game shot and deer stalker.

 

Look at the average age of beaters , guns and picker up team on a shoot day . We need to get as many kids into it as possible.
