I take it these people have got permission 2 shoot on these places ,it's 1 thing slopeing about wi a dog but rifles what is the law on trespassing wi a firearm 

Tresspass is a civil matter so unless the landowner wants to follow through with prosecutions the police can’t do much where as if you Trespass with a gun it’s technically armed tresspass and no longer a civil matter and the Gards can intervene. That’s as far as I know. But doesn’t matter cause they don’t own a pair of boots don’t mind walk the land the shoot from the road.

There's a seriously noticeable decline in the numbers over the last few years up North since the rifle technology has hit the market at working man's prices. Lads on a lamping foxes FB page at Christmas crying about only getting a couple for the month of December when he had 30 last year and 80 the year before. The same lad that posted pictures of milky vixens and cubs shot at the mouth of the den. What hope is there? Another lad on from down Dublin way that shot over 100 in December alone! Where's the sport in plugging an animal from 200 yrds away that hasn't a notion you're there because of the 3 grand you spent on a thermal scope? I'm all for necessary control but it's so far beyond that now, it's decimation for no good reason. I personally think social media is to blame and it's become a numbers game and d*ck measuring competition. Without an outlet to tell the world, 80% of them wouldn't be doing it.

Would be interesting to know what kind of acerage he shot that 111 off in a month. That’s averaging almost four a night if he was out every night for 30 nights!
