    had a run in with another shooter tonight

    just in after flying my bird , i could hear gun shots getting steadly closer until a guy wearning a tracksuit and a shotgun belt appeared with another guy with an air rifle,

    i put the bird away , turned and said hi , can i see your permission ? , i dont have it with me he replied ,( i am the only named shooter on the ground )
    ok i said , you shouldnt be here without it

    **** off ,i dont need to answer to you he replied

    again i said , who gave you permission and give me your name

    get to **** he replied , i dont answer to no **** , , i picked up the phone to call the land owner

    and with that he stormed off ,

    all this time his side by side was closed


    did i handle it correctly ?

    Police out to that one. The shotgun may have been illegally held etc.

    If you had time to make a check with the landowner I might have called the police and then kept them talking! Easy to plan these things in hindsight though.

    Personally I'd report it first to the landowner, and then the police.
    If it happens again straight on to the police before he even gets close enough to speak.

    Brian,

    All an Anti has to do is call the Police and say they have been threatened by "a man with a gun".

    Feel free to do the same when Deja Vu strikes again

    Too right....we pay for the ARV and Helicopter so we might as well use them for something other than lost cats and double parking...

    Might just be worth informing the landowner, at the same time checking that it wasnt in fact his nephew or similar, stranger things have happened.
    I got belted across the face with a shotgun muzzle by a "poacher", when the police interviewed the landowner the assailant turned out to be a business associate that had been given permission 10 years before to shoot rabbits, they never saw him on the land and it had never been withdrawn so he walked free on the armed trespass but was convicted of assault with a weapon, 12 months suspended.
