    Davie- I would put a call in to Jim Archibald, SP FEO at Campbell Street, Hamilton and have a chat with him before you go down this route and waste money. I have yet to hear of an FEO in Scotland grant deer calibre rifles on the back of bought days. I had to prove that I had ground suitable for 308 before I got it and already had ground suitable for 243 for fox and deer.

    Got to agree on this one Jim is a nice uy but will dig his heals when it comes to granting CF rifles .Christ i had a bother getting wild boar on my ticket.

    If this is so then that could be that idea up in the air. But according to an email reply from pitt street on this matter booked stalking days count as permission for land also invites to stalk with others also count

    There are plenty of chaps that only ever do paid days and they have no problem .But in strathclyde it is a bit differnt as there is no shortage of ground and the fo knows that. Contact the boys from himilton and see if they cant get you on a farm in your own area then its job done,

    It depends entirely on your FEO, here in Fife bookings are all you need. It's **** I know, a lot of forces make up their own rules on the home office guidelines (section 13.10).

    If you come from Sterling princess Fiona wants written permission from god himself!!!!
