To give context, I have some goat stalking my cousin is from another county and has a restricted ticket. They will not life the restrictions despite having a fair bit of experience and an open ticket already on his .223 and other calibres. Anyway to cut a long story short, he wanted goat adding to his certificate, so he can use his restricted conditioned deer calibre on my ground. I included a letter stating he had permission from me, the only stalker on the ground, to stalk with me. The firearms department have said my letter is meaningless the only one they would accept is one from the landowner.
My landowner does not know my cousin but trusts my judgement on who I bring on the ground so I will not ask him for a letter as this is above and beyond. There are plenty of people who gain their tickets from bought stalks, so can anyone quote any relevant home office guidance on this? They really are playing hard ball on all things ot do with his conditions and this 'letter' request is just unjustified.
Cheers in advance.
