A friend of mine is currently mentoringa stalker who shoots with .243 calibre rifle for deer. The mentored stalker was planning to buy a days stalking and would have been able to use his .243 without his mentor being present. I am able to offer the mentored stalker a days roe shooting for free, as a friend of a friend. My quesitons are as follows :-
- I am pretty certain that the mentored stalker can not use his .243 rifle on my land without the presence of his mentor as this is a condition of his cerrtificate but I am informed that as I have a full certificate I am able to take him shooting on my land using my rifle (6.5x55) with the permission of the land owner as I am classed as a servant of the land owner. The mentored stalker will be in my presence at all times and I will be overseeing safety/other issues. I am also led to believe this is written in the home office guidelines.
Can somebody please confirm this and/or send this information to me if they know where I can find it. Any other information that will help me is greatly appreciated before I contact my local police regarding this.
