Thread: level 2 stalk - shooting from the truck?

    level 2 stalk - shooting from the truck?

    just wondered if this would count for a level 2 stalk???

    roe stalking on downland with very large fields, say 500m plus wide, deer are held up in wildlife strips/small plantations which are difficult to stalk on foot but not impossible. looking for cull does to fit into criteria of managment strategy for the ground - you could spend a long time stalking upto a piece of ground which holds deer, only to find that nothing is suitable. much more productive to drive up, bump the deer and shoot them in the fields when they stop and look back - that way if you dont find a suitable doe at the first location you can move onto the next more quickly than walking on foot. obvioulsy stop truck and turn off engine to take shot, maybe even get out and use bipod on ground or bonnet.

    any thoughts?

    cheers

    At what part of shooting from the truck is actually stalking It's the stalking abilities that your there to show to your witness not just the shooting and gralloching process .

    Unless you are disabled ,therefore do not have the mobility to stalk you can still pass the level 2 you can use a stalking base IE. Highseat or a doe box or similar to prove the elements on the portfolio ,any disability must be Written down as proof .

    I have always been of the opinion that the level 2 assessment comprises of a cull plan, demonstrating that you have the correct equipment for the task in hand, demonstrating your ability to stalk the ground in a safe and competent manner using the wind and natural advantages, identify the beast as per the cull plan, shoot it accurately and safely, demonstrating back stops, approach to deer after shot, making the area safe and thereafter a competent gralloch meeting hygiene requirements and demonstrating your ability to look for and identify possible disease.

    I would think that shooting a deer using a vehicle as described could allow you to fulfil some of the requirement of the assessment but not all. Bumping deer into open land does not demonstrate your ability to work a piece of ground.

    I wouldnt be getting out of the truck. Just set the rifle up with a digital scope and a viewer in the cab and point the gun at the deer until the crosshairs show you're on target and pull the trigger. Keeps you warm that way.
    Would it pass for a level 2? Cant see why not if you planned it that way. Would it be in the spirit of level 2......nah

    No but shooting from a moving vehicle is, so as long as it's stationery you're ok

    Did you read what I put up that's it no debate if you have further problem with it phone DMQ and speak with Nick lane this was his interpretation on what I asked at the AW briefing.

    Your vehicle can only be used as a highseat or a doe box quite plain.

    Very Simple it is an offence without obtaining a special licence to move deer without a licence being in place
