Thread: taking a guest.

  1. #1

    taking a guest.

    If someone was invited to join a syndicate member to stalk.

    The guest assumes the syndicate member is allowed to take guest.

    Later transpires the member cannot take a guest.

    What is the legal positon?

    Discuss.
    lakelander and heym rifles.

    Not much detail there mate but on a lease agreement it should say what you can and cannot do. But i take lads out with me but as long as there is only one gun whats the problem same for others who shoot on my ground.

    Technically armed trespass from the details you've given. Always have a written agreement/permission. Good faith won't back you up if it goes further.

    I would think your not break'n any rules here, as long as your the one carry'n the rifle.
    To be on the safe side however i would check lease agreement,
    as said " I thaught it would be ok "is not going to carry any weight if you land in trouble with the Law.

    I would say that the guest is acting in good faith. The person who should know the terms of the contract is the syndicate member and at worst he could be held to be in breach of contract.

    if someone invited me on a stalk as you say,, being a syndicate member (or in any other situation) i would need to see on paper that he can take a guest with his rifle.if not ide leave my rifle at home,but still go for a look out..but as you put it it sounds like the guest took his rifle and he had no legal right to be there with it! and the person that took him would be aiding and abetting i should think.

    .

    it is a hypothetical situation.
    lakelander and heym rifles.

    Nowt wrong with that aslong as you did not get caught at the time
    once found out, the syndicate member could be in the ***** with the lease holder
    always good to make sure your host is allowed even if you ask in a round about way as not to offend

    hi,

    firstly if invited onto the land i would enquire first if i was allowed.
    I would do that especially if i was bringing my rifle.
    If your using his rifle you would be better placed if the pooh hit the fan.
    You make a good question and hopefully all who read will now think twice about going into such a situation blind.

    hope if this happened to you it ended ok.

    Hopefully this won't hijack the thread but the original question did get me thinking along a similar line - what about the same situation but going out on a paid stalk? Should the pro stalker show his land permissions letters as a matter of course (and certificates of applicable business insurance) when you book?
