Thread: Shooting across 2 permissions

  1. #1

    Shooting across 2 permissions

    Interested in people's opinions on this.

    I have 2 permissions that border each other, deer permission on one (A) but not on the other (B) because the owner doesn't own the sporting rights (I do rabbit control for them and they are happy that I am controlling the deer on the bordering land), if an instance arose whereby there was a deer on permission A but the only way I could get a safe shot was to shoot from permission B where do I stand legally on this?

    Probably hypothetical based on the land in question as back stop is generally quite good but you never know what occasion may arise!

    I'm no expert on shooting rights however to me the logic is as follows

    You have permission to shoot rabbit on permission B - therefore you are not breaking any law by either possessing a fire arm or discharging it there (unless you have a closed ticket and the land has not been cleared by the police for full bore)

    You have permission to shoot deer on permission A.

    Therefore by discharging your rifle in permission B but hitting a deer on permission A you have neither broken the letter nor the spirit of the law

    Just my take but could be wrong

    Work out a better way to shoot deer on permission A

    if you didn't have permission B does that mean you could not shoot any deer ?

    It would mean I would struggle at one end of permission A yes....(also if I didn't have B I never would have got A, but that's another story!)

    Open ticket, no calibre restriction on either permission

    Why not just ask the landowners of both permissions if it's OK to do this ? After all they are the ones who can hawl you to task if you get a guesstimate answer on here and it turns out wrong

    Edit
    Imagine the scene
    You trying to explain that someone on sd says it's OK to do this while landowners A/B say I don't care don't shoot my land anymore! !
    Not worth the risk in my eyes

    You have permission to discharge the rifle on B and to shoot deer on A.

    You discharge your rifle on B, as entitled.

    The deer gets shot on A, as entitled.

    Whats the problem?
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    I usually see more deer on permission c! They just stand there, mocking me!
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    Ctrl-Alt FACT

    I cannot see an issue in my personal opinion assuming no calibre restrictions. It may be worth establishing consent to recover the carcass from land A shot on B so no complications exist

    i agree with this.

    only problem is what the sporting rights owner would think.
