Thread: Shooting platform for landrover 90

  1. #1

    Shooting platform for landrover 90

    Thinking of cutting a shooting hatch into my 90 hard top. Anybody got any advice views or experience.
    Or would it be easier to get a cheap secondhand truck cab & just turn it into a pick up.

    Not technically if you comply with the Deer Act:

    Subject to subsection (5) below, if any person—
    (a) discharges any firearm, or projects any missile, from any mechanically propelled vehicle at any deer, or
    (b) uses any mechanically propelled vehicle for the purpose of driving deer,
    he shall be guilty of an offence.
    (5) An act which, apart from this subsection, would constitute an offence under subsection (4) above shall not constitute such an offence if it is done—
    (a) by, or with the written authority of, the occupier of any enclosed land where deer are usually kept; and
    (b) in relation to any deer on that land.

    So yes you can on enclosed land (another mine field) and with written authorisation from the land owner!

    mate check up on the updated version

    Article 2 amends section 4(4) of the 1991 Act as regards the use of mechanically propelled vehicles when shooting at deer. The effect of the amendment is that it is no longer an offence to shoot at deer from a mechanically propelled vehicle, provided that the vehicle is stationary and its engine is not running.
