So to cut a long story short, I've been shooting and hunting since I was around 10. I've had both a SGC and an FAC in the past. The FAC was full of conditions however, and it was very restrictive. I had a mentorship condition on it. Essentially I could never really get out and shoot, even with the rimfire, and have only ever taken 1 deer in the UK. I could do as much as I wished with the shotgun, but it would cost me money to shoot rifle with my mentor.
Anyway I gave up my FAC when I moved to Canada. I have done lots of hunting out here, however if I do move home next year, I'd like to really get back into stalking. Perhaps I can apply for an FAC with an open condition on it, as well as getting my DSC1 before I apply.
What would be my best course of action? I want to keep on hunting, but without spending boat loads of money and having an FAC again with so many restrictive conditions.
