Thread: A puzzle

  1. #1

    A puzzle

    Just a bit of fun.
    While waiting in ambush one evening last week I had a thought.
    You are in the borders on the English side, and you see a roe in one of your fields in Scotland.
    You raise your .222 and aim, If you fire have you commited an offence?
    You have permission and are on your land.
    It is just an invisible boundry.
    You have a legal calibre and roe in Scotland on your ticket.
    if you discharge it at the deer from your side where it is unlawful, with the intent to kill it in scotland where do you stand legally?
    regards John.

    Why would you be out stalking in the first place in England with a 222 irrespective of that you had permission to shoot deer over the invisible boundary?unless your quarry you was after on the English side was the smaller species of deer then I would say you would commit an offence taking a shot at a roe deer over the boundary in Scotland with that particular weapon.
    The action would be that you discharged with intent at an illegal quarry species in England with the incorrect calibre.

    All hypothetical of course as who would know for sure where the definitive boundary was unless it was clearly defined visually

    As I read it you are quite correct
    It is an unlawfull act , so I would be breaking the law as per conditions of my ticket
    bit of a grey area I admit
    but still the intent to commit a crime is the offence ,
    as the crime itself is in my mind actually lawfull
