    Not to my knowledge in the area I stalk and you don't even require L1 or 2 either
    Who was the bloke and where was he talking about..?

    Alot of people seem to have read snippets of info in the paper about the recent change of legislation surrounding culling female deer out of season.

    You now need a license to take female deer out of season even if you are the land owner & the deer are causing significant crop damage, but Jo public has mis-read the article altogether & think you need a license to shoot any species/sex of deer.

    Ive come across this a few times over the past few weeks.

    This is incorrect advice. As long as you have permission to shoot the deer and they are in season, you can do so quite happily without any licences or qualifications. You would need a license if you wanted to shoot deer at night or out of season in certain circumstances.

    only thing you need is permission off the land owner/owner of the shooting rights, the animal to be in season and deer wording on your FAC and shoot away mate.

    Just goes to show what little he knows about deer management!!
    Also highlights the dangers of talking too loud about your ground `down the local`, this guy knew nothing but the next one might have a strong interest in what you have
