    Get a letter of the land owner saying you permisssion to shoot the deer it will help your application / variation you may still find they put a DSC1 clause on your ticket or a mentor all of which are not legal which fire arms office do you come under

    If you don't ask, you don't get. Be prepared for a knock back, a certain person in the licensing is not keen on .243 for fox as its overkill!!
    I have it on my licence, so it is possible.

    Fill in the form and submit. A letter from landowner giving permission to shoot both deer and fox should sort it. Home office guidance states that 6mm is suitable for use on fox. It also states that if a shooter wishes to use one rifle for dual purpose I.e. fox and deer, 6.5 is acceptable, especially in windy areas.
    All this relies on the land being passed for requested calibre.
