Thread: Ringing the Police before going shooting?

  1. #1

    Ringing the Police before going shooting?

    Do you ever ring the Police before heading out shooting? Just had the Plod out to see us on the farm after reports of a "high powered beam of light" was being used (we'd just got back from an hours foxing). Obviously all was cleared up quite quickly but they said a phone call to HQ would be a good idea in future. So I'm intrigued as to how many people do so? We always ring on shoot days in the season, but have never bothered on a night.

    Regards

    Tom
    I'm telling Captain - from the Wee'est of men.

    On one of my permissions yes on the others no, depends where you are, if they get a call they still come out as they seem unable to co ordinate between themselves.

    +1 for the same reason.
    Just back in! 6 Foxes less on my ground!
    Ring them going out and ring them when finished and cancel the Incident Number.

    Not really any business of the police except where there are local poaching/crime issues. We should not be encouraging them to micro-manage lawful shooting activities, they are quite capable of taking that particular liberty for themselves!
