hi guys i am looking for a bit of guidance if possible , i have just applied for a fac ,with devon and cornwall ! all of my stalking will be by invite or booked days ,4 weeks booked in scotland (booking confirmations provided) and bookings in devon (confirmation provided) also by verbal invites in devon and scotland "names and contact details provided" ( all have large areas covering quite a few various farms),now ! the land over which most of the scotish stalking takes place is vast ! and not owned by 1 organisation or estate just a case of on the day it will be decided which area to stalk ! also on a smaller scale in devon the same thing could/would apply so would not be possible to confirm land clearance at short notice if needed as i ssume this will take a few days for each force to communicate with each other and get back to me ,if i am issued the standard restricted ticket this would probably stop me stalking on quite a few days per annum due to getting confirmation! what do you think the chances of me getting an open cert on first issue are ?
I am ex RFD(scotland) , surrendered OPEN FAC (13 years ago in scotland)held for 9 years,DSC1 ,just started dsc2 , no adverse history at all .if its any help all of the land is shot over with a .308 held by open certificate owners and i am applying for .25-06, any help and guidance appreciated .
ALL THE BEST GLYN
