I suspect this has probably been covered before, so apologies - I would be very grateful for informed advice.
What is the Scottish law with regard to shooting out of season deer on agricultural land/enclosed woodland?
I understand that SNH have published a 'general authorisation' on this. However, I don't understand that details.
Do you have to apply on a case-by-case basis for permission? Or is it enough to have written authorisation from the landowner, stating that the deer are on improved land/enclosed woodland?
And finally, can you take carcasses so shot to a game dealer (assuming proper authorisation)?
