    In England, you can shoot Muntjac and CWD with a 22 Centrefire, I believe since Oct 2007?In Scotland you can shoot Roe only (We don't have either of the others....well maybe). You must be chucking out a minimum of 50gr bullet though.TJ
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    There's also a requirement for a muzzle energy of not less that 1000ft/lb.
