    Public Liability

    Basc do not cover you for any paid shooting you may do , only recreational. Apart from that , why not..
  5. I think they are great , they bring me plenty of work in as everyone knows them and asks them for a price first . They just quoted a job to shoot feral pigeons at £340 per half an hour per man , minimum off two men needed, they said , plus vat . So 1 hour is £1632 to shoot pigeons , not bad . Its 6 mile from me and i got the job, strangely..

    Public Liability

    Clivertons , definately. i have public liability and personel accident cover with them. Plus it covers use of firearms, a must have. You pays your money , you take your choice.
  7. Wow , yes please , you can have all my permissions . Good luck, you'll need it . Get your bike out and start asking locally mate . A good place to start would be to get some beating on shoot days , that sometimes pays off .

    I couldn't believe my ears , no matter my luck . I've had several evenings roost shooting there now , Happy days, ( well evenings ).
  11. Tried and trusted mk4 Fenn on rats in a wire cubby , proves itself time and time again.I put 2 inside a small stable yesterday afternoon, i had a text this morning from the lady to say there was a rat in one. Sure enough one very dead rat , never get bored off finding that. Plus one very happy customer.
  12. Too true , i have used Phostoxin for moles but it's not very effective . I now only use it against rabbits if i have no other option, saying that i haven't used any for 2 years . I hate the stuff.

    Welcome mate, but you'r one of hundreds who's come on here seeking permission. I don't blame you i must say , i moved last year after 50 years in Norfolk to scotland. I have asked at every farm/ croft i drove past , just before christmas i was asking about beating at a farm and the reply came ," i'd rather have someone shoot my pigeons ". It pays to ask , ask and ask.
  14. Haven't used a gibbet line for years , it used to be the way to prove you where doing your job. If they don't believe me , and they should by looking over the ground, it's the last time i work for them.
