Thread: First Roe Buck

  1. #1

    First Roe Buck

    It gave me great pleasure on Monday evening to get my 14 year old lad onto his first roe buck. Here is Connor with his prize, I think I was ten times more excited than he was!

    Thanks smithy,

    He's been stalking with me numerous times over the last few years, but would never take a shot as he wanted to be 100% confident of a clean kill. On Monday the perfect broadside shot presented itself and away he went!

    Deako,

    My lad is 14 in a few weeks how much hasle did you have getting him his FAC or was it an easy and painless process?

    You must be very proud i also like that he didn't want to take a shot until he was sure of a clean kill, it shows real responsibility and respect to the buck.

    Sweep,

    He has not yet got his own FAC. Local FEO told me to take him out stalking (with the landowners consent) to see if he had the right level of maturity towards the sport, then to apply should he wish to pursue a stalking career. It was intimated though that the proceedure should be pretty straightforward.

    Not so.

    Firearms Act 1968

    Section 11(1)A person carrying a firearm or ammunition belonging to another person holding a certificate under this Act may, without himself holding such a certificate, have in his possession that firearm or ammunition under instructions from, and for the use of, that other person for sporting purposes only.

    Thanks Sweep/David, I'll try to get hold of the FEO this week for clarification.

    Until then, Connor didn't shoot that buck, it was me!
