Hi chaps, apologies if this has been covered before somewhere.
After requesting Kent to condition all my rifles AOLQ they have come back with "you will need to prove there are Boar on your land for the .270" I asked how I might do this and the reply was "use cameras" now this isn't a problem provided they accept that the photos I show them are in fact on my land.
How far do I go with this and what if I had no cameras or indeed could not afford that sort of gear in the first place?
When I initially asked for a .270 together with a .38 revolver for Deer they made me take and pass DSC1 which I have since been told by BASC is outside their remit.
I have no objection to sensible precautions being taken by firearms depts but I have held a ticket for a good many years (40plus) now and it gets a tad tiresome to be treated like an inexperienced newcomer to the sport, I have been out for approx 2 dozen stalks for Boar,a few paid but mostly with friends so I really do not see why it is necessary to prove anything, what difference does the presence of Boar make to the granting of AOLQ?
