    Highlandhunting.co.uk ?

    Anyone on here have any experience with the above company or Robert Milne ? Just that I had arranged with Mr. Milne to go out for a Roe buck and he cancelled three times and has not responded to last calls or messages? Also, when I tried to google the company again, it seems to have gone?

    His website is still there but the DNS for his host is down so it's not working...

    Code:
    Name servers:
            dns1.webhost.another.com
            dns2.webhost.another.com
    Code:
    [root@intranet ~]# nslookup dns1.webhost.another.com
    Server:         192.168.2.1
    Address:        192.168.2.1#53
    
    
    ** server can't find dns1.webhost.another.com: NXDOMAIN
    I can see his site by setting the IP manually....

    Hi Guys

    As an ex Police Firearms Officer my advice is to steer well clear of this guy. In July 2006 whilst committing an act of armed trespass on ground I shoot over whilst accompanied by a foreign national he offered violence to myself and was duly the subject of a complaint to Grampian Police who know him very well. Despite a gamekeeper friend as a witness for me the Police firstly tried to ignore the complaint then sent two local bobbies around to try and talk me out of the complaint. Once they realised I probably knew considerably more about firearms legislation than they did and I didn't just act as a Firearms Enquiries Officer they realised they had to do something. At this point I should have realised what was going to happen and shipped the whole file off to Sir Steven House, the Chief Constable. The Final result was he was dealt with for Breach of the Peace under the Adult Offenders and fined which prevented him from having a recorded conviction. He can be extremely aggressive and has regularly been put off land over which he has no permission. Another trick is to drive around dropping off foreign nationals on ground over which he doesn't always have permission. The difficult thing to understand is despite all of his well known mis-deeds and all the near misses Grampian Police ( now police service Scotland) refuse to remove his certificates and firearms. I can provide further information if any other members require it.

    So whilst the majority of us are a clean as a whistle, and don't even f*rt in the wrong direction, folks like this get to keep their certificates despite being known to have aggressive tendencies, and no regard to the law!

    Gents.

    My post only covers the tip of the iceberg, some of the other incidents are significantly worse and as stated in my letter of complaint the complaint was not made lightly and was intended to protect the general public, of which I am a member, from the threat of a future shooting incident whether accidental or otherwise. Visions of the activity, or should I say lack of it, on the build up to Dunblan come to mind.

    Sounds like a very serious comment...

    A very serious comment indeed.. So in a nut shell this Robert Milne was approached by you whilst out shooting and he just so happened to be on your ground?
    Most probably a confused mix up on his part.
    I can just imagine you going mouthing off acting like ten men and he`s replied to you in a round about way to feck off..
    So then you`ve reported the incident to the authorities and they in a round about way have also told you to feck off..
    That's with and including a witness account.
    Your still not happy with the out come so you`ve decided to stir a little trouble up for him all by yourself..
    If he`s still in possession of his firearms ticket after being reviewed by the Police then by law he offers no threat to the public or to the peace.
