  1. Best Practice for using a dog

    Well, that's interesting. So it DOES appear that when entering land in Scotland to track a wounded deer taking a firearm is NOT allowed as offences under the Firearms Act are still relevent, unless permission has been granted by that landowner.......EXACTLY what some of us have been saying all...
  2. The 243 may be fine in some localities, but

    Glad to see you haven't lost it Jim! :lol::lol::lol:
  3. The 243 may be fine in some localities, but

    Agreed. I would never question the experiences of the likes of Bogtrotter and his use of the .243 on the large numbers of red he has shot. I'm not questioning the performance of the .243 at all to be honest. But in my experience with Sika where guests were shooting them in the chest on the...
  4. The 243 may be fine in some localities, but

    Yeh, we shot a lot up Tweed over 3 estates that were in the heart of the Sika population. Happily neck or head shoot with a .243 but wouldn't be as happy with taking chest shots on them. I'm not suggesting it won't kill them, it will. But other factors come in to play. How far will it run and...
  5. The 243 may be fine in some localities, but

    Well you've been fortunate then because I could count on very few fingers the number of Sika stags I have seen shot in the ribs and drop on the spot regardless of chambering. Almost all run and sometimes for a long, long way.....I wasn't deriding the chambering, I've owned several .243 rifles...
  6. Dog trackers .

    So pleased you posted this. Part 7 specifically refers to EXACTLY what I have said all along, the Firearms legislation is still relevant and contrary to what you've suggested earlier is NOT superseded on the grounds of animal welfare under the Deer Act. Nowhere, does your working group findings...
  7. Dog trackers .

    z Tha was actually brought up as an issue previously in some other old thread and a valid point. Well, going by UKSHA a t their interpretation of the legislation, they could ignore him/her and carry on! However, if the landowner took on the mantel of tracker with a view to dispatching the...
  8. Dog trackers .

    Your wrong. You constantly refer to sect 25. Let's try and keep this simple. Where can I find the piece of legislation that states welfare of deer supersedes all other legislation???? Very important that claim is proven. Very important...cannot believe you have made such a bold statement that...
  9. Dog trackers .

    Well, there is the thing Carl......if we have an individual or organisation in a position of 'authority' for portraying themselves as experts, who for several years now has publicly advised on legal matters and encouraged others to follow that thinking, should those actions eventually be shown...
  10. Dog trackers .

    I may be wrong Carl and a court could find in their favour and a court could potentially create case law by accepting the need to dispatch a wounded deer is indeed a reasonable excuse and supersedes the firearms legislation but right now there is no cross reference made, it is specifically...

    20Trespassing with firearm. (1)A person commits an offence if, while he has a firearm [F82or imitation firearm] with him, he enters or is in any building or part of a building as a trespasser and without reasonable excuse (the proof whereof lies on him). (2)A person commits an offence if, while...
  12. Dog trackers .

    Yes, the law is the law and just like the landowners and the FC do not write the law, neither do you or the UKSHA. You and your organisation have time and time again claimed to operate within the law, yet seem to only cherry pick the parts that suit your argument, ignoring all other legislation...
