    Quick Question in DSC1 question bank (97)

    Hello everyone. I'm currently revising for the DSC1 and going through the General Question Bank. One question has me stumped as I don't think any of the multiple choices make sense given my understanding of the law.

    97. To shoot deer on unenclosed land anywhere in Scotland, a valid Game License must be held:
    a - By everyone unless specifically exempt under the law
    b - Unless you are the owner of the land in question
    c - Unless you are carrying written permission from the landowner
    d - Unless you are only shooting roe deer

    My understanding is that Game licences and game dealers licences have been abolished in Scotland with effect from 7 April 2011 when the new Wildlife and Natural Environment (Scotland) Bill was passed. Therefore my instinct tells me that a would be the logical answer would be A. Does anyone know the definitive correct answer?

    Remember you only need to know the sections relevant to England, Scotland and Ireland questions will not come up for you. It is good to know the other bits and pieces but i didn't bother till after my DSC1. You can have too many dates facts and figures in your head that on the day may confuse the issue.

    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.
