    That a too bad. Is that a one off or is it common to get to court.

    Should have been 6000!!
    What about their vehicle?

    doesnt say anything about vehicle just says rifles and equipment worth 2000 confiscated.Not been too many poaching cases that I can think of up this way recently though about a month ago a 24 year old on Mull was done for shooting a stag with a 30-06 with a house directly behind it though it wasnt hit a neighbour seen the guy taking the shot and he was found guilty after trial,think he was fined 1000 but it didnt say if his Fac was revoked

    I wonder if any of the confiscated gear will get on here?

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    we are seeinga lot of evidence of poaching on our ground and that of our neighbours. most appears to be out teh pick up window.
    Police interested but never see them about.
