I'm due for renewal in 2017, currently with Cheshire.
It seems we will finally be moving to Monmouthshire, to a smallholding with 25 acres. I wont know anyone there for a while and obtaining a permission with a substantial acreage could take some time.
I am reasonably confident that my .22, .17hornet, and probably .223 (fox) will be safe on the land - its miles from anyone else, no public footpaths etc. and we will have stock Chickens, geese etc to protect, a high seat is a priority.
The .308 is currently used for purchased stalking and that will remain the case unless we get a few strays on the land or the boar from the forest of Dean decide to swim over. Whilst I have posted here before and been advised I could buy stalking in the area (after making a positive impression on local stalking owners), I wonder whether with my new firearms constabulary I will need my own land for the .308 ?
Anyone know the local area who could advise please ?
If anyone on here owns or could advise on local stalking purchase that would also be very helpful and gratefully received as a few local stalks would establish need for the .308.
P.S. Ope ticket on all rifles.
