I'm looking out for some new stalking and foxing atm, but i could do with learning how the condition on my FAC should be met in different situations. The exact wording i have is " .......land deemed suitable by the Chief...."
So, scenario a) A local farmer gives me permission to shoot. This seems easy enough - i contact FLO to as if said farm has been signed off for my caliber, if it hasn't then i request inspection. Does the FLO, at this stage, need my "permission to shoot" letter? or just the address and the cal i want to shoot?
Scenario b) I pay for an accompanied stalk on unknown bit of land. Do i just ask the stalker if land is signed off and take his word for it? or would my condition not matter as i am accompanied by someone whom (i assume) would have an "open" fac?
Scenario c) I'm invited to join a syndicate which shoots on half a dozen different farms/estates, at different locations, across a couple of counties. Can it be assumed that all the land would have been signed off as it is syndicate land (for .243 for example, i realise that land can be signed off for some cals and not others) or would i need to obtain the list of land from the club and forward to my flo to investigate?
What do you think? I'm not trying to make up awkward situations, i'm sure these happen all the time - i just need a bit of clarity.Thanks, Mike
