I attended a BASC shooters evening a couple of weeks ago.
One of the topics on the evening is the new snaring legislation that comes into effect now (Scotland only).
In brief you have to register yourself with your local constabulary after you have completed
a half day training course where a certificate would be issued to be submitted with your application.
The cost of the course would be £45 and we are hoping to get them to run a day in Edinburgh if I can get at least eight bodies.I have four at the moment and was hoping some S/D members in my area may be interested.Drop me a line, I have pasted some links below with more information.
