A few weeks ago i returned my fac to Sussex Police to update it to include deer with a copy of my dsc1 and a copy of a letter giving permission to shoot deer from my local farmer. i have had .243 on open ticket for a few years for fox and thought it would be a simple matter of adding deer to my ticket. this is what i received,
Dear Mr Parsons you have been conditioned to shoot deer only from a high seat or elevated position for a period of twelve months. this will allow you to shoot from a stable shooting platform to take a safe shot. at the end of 12 months you may apply to have the condition removed . however you must demonstrate competency and provide a record of date of your outings,type of ground stalked, weather conditions, ammunition expanded, quarry taken and means of disposal, photographic evidence would be benificial. Yours Sincerely Carol Popple.
I have writted a long letter to sussex police complaining about the conditions and sent a copy to BASC i will let you know the outcome.
I would be interested in What the forum thinks. regards geoff
