    Somebody was hare coarsing on my little permission in staffs last week. I would want a firm plan of action if i was to approach anyone. Firearms can be misinterpreted in potentially volatile situations. Watch yourselves! Regards, Ed.

    A bit of safe friendly advice leave it well alone .Just not what you want mixed up in advice for what it s worth .
    Let the local farmers deal with it, if the so wish, most of them will leave it well alone also they know what types are into it ,they won't bother with them due to the reciprocations.

    Sort out the cause and shoot the Hares and Deer close to the road put up plenty of anti lamping stuff, usually rumbles them and they disappear .

    Good advice Widowson for me i think you should have been sorting out the cause of the problem first you dont see many poachers in the central belt on normal farm ground reason the quarrie is always at a well kept level.
