    a tricky one

    i have just got a new piece of ground for shooting bunnies on its rammed my problem is and this is why its so busy is the place has house on top of a bank to the north, east and south however there is a telegraph pole in the middle of the field that if a 10 ft high highseat was leant up against it would be a safe and suitable platform ????????my question is has anyone tried this is it legal to rest a highseat against a telegraph pole ?????????? help and merry xmas

    just put a free stander in front that way your not using the telegraph pole ,i wouldnt think you would be leagle and you are bound to have someone report it ,atb wayne

    Are you sure it is telegraph pole and not an electricity pole with live wires attached,either way you are not allowed to put a highseat against it, to put one against an electricity pole would be extremely dangerous

    if it is electric you need to check first because if you are too close to the overhead cables electricity will jump straight through your steel highseat .make sure it isnt electric,atb wayne

    A little lateral thinking but you could also try some longnetting at night as well as the shooting if it's rammed with rabbits??

    on a piece of land that size i may well just go out with my air rifle. quiet and little to no chance of ricochet. and it really sharpens up your stalking skills
