Over the past 4 years I tried talking to about 9 farm and land owners in the south east to get permission to shoot foxes (nevermind deer!), same answer from all owners: No I already have someone managing vermin/foxes on my land!
If it really is that difficult to obtain permission to shoot, how do you guys get to keep your rifles and not lose them when it`s time for FAC renewal?! Never mind trying to get an open ticket for a beginner like me??!!
I also browsed the web and this site for Syndicates to join and read posts like: The queue to join a decent syndicate starts from Surry and ends somewhere up north in Scotland!
After spending all my savings on a rifle, I`m wondering if I made a mistake and should have just stuck to the accompanied stalks using the estate rifles?!
