Thread: Legal or not?

  1. #1

    Legal or not?

    It's 6.30am, sunrise is at 7.29. You're stalking in dense conifer woodland and youre certain there's deer ahead of you but you can't see them through your scope. Is it legal to use supplemental light in this scenario to shoot deer without any night shooting permission being in place?

    Not sure, and I'd be wary of accepting any opinions on this thread. Unless of course the poster can quote the relevant legislation.......

    Why would you want to?

    A lot of people often refer to the past, but don’t shoot in the present…..


    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    I can't find anything in the 1991 deer act that mentions lamps or NV/thermal etc only mentions the sunrise/sunset times. Would be handy if some of the people saying it's illegal could post a link to what law or piece of legislation states this.

    An hr before sunrise you would probably be able to see perfectly clear to shoot through a decent scope as sunrise is not "first light" it the "official time" on that day of the year that is classified as sunrise .
    If you watch the weather reports you will hear them say sunrise and sunset
    Next time you're walking down the street and see a homeless person go buy them a sandwich and a coffee, change of fate and it could be you one day !!!

    BUY BRITISH !!!!
