    Contact SNH, and ask to speak to the licencing department, they will advise from there.

    ... someone shot 'Sammie the seal' on the banks or the river Annan which was properly done apparently and in the news (it was scoffing salmon), I only mention this because my son made a girl cry at his primary school when the teacher mentioned the seal had 'died' because he said someone shot it and it was ok because seal probably taste like deer, dad shoots deer, he probably shot it (which I didn't).

    I nearly pissed myself when we got the phone call home to 'let us know'. Sorry I just had to mention it because I had a chuckle when I read the post title

    It's probably about time they started handing them out readily, fingers crossed!

    I think if my memmory serves me correctly there is a paragraph in Gun Law that covers the use of firearms on seals. Currently my copy is burried in a box in a steel storage containeer so no easy access.

    I wouldn't get involved.... for a few reasons

    1. it's hardly sport is it?
    2. too many seal spotters about
    3. they look at you with sad puppy dog eyes
    "It's halfway down the hill, directly below that tree next to a rock that looks like a bell-end"
