Thread: shooting from a stile yes or no

  1. #1

    shooting from a stile yes or no

    rifle on stile standing off my permission muzzle in my permission
    only cover I can use
    I do not think it is armed trespass ie public right of way
    I will ask landowner for permission
    any ideas

    I think that you will find that the public right of way and the stile is irrelevant in the scenario that you gave lister. The relevant part is that you are shooting on land on which you do not have permission to shoot. I can't see how the fact that the muzzle is on your permission makes any difference at all, you are still standing outside your permission and shooting.

    You make it sound like the old myth that a girl can't get pregnant if she does it standing up and keeps one foot on the floor.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    where you are standing is where you are in possession of the rifle

    Nice one. You reckon it isn't trespass in the first instance so how can it become armed trespass, am I right? So, I guess you need to know if permission is required to shoot in a public place. In Scotland the foreshore is just such a place and it is OK for anyone to shoot there provided they aren't breaking any other laws. Yours is an interesting question. Clearly, I don't know the definitive answer but I suspect you haven't had that yet either.

    A RoW is owned by somebody. If you do not have permission from the land owner to be on that land with a loaded gun then I would view it as armed trespass if it were to become a police matter. As written by somebody else it is where you are standing that matters, you are holding the gun.
    You are not in Scotland so you are subject to English/Welsh Law.
    Stop shooting now and get hold of a copy of Parkes/Thornley book Deer Law and Liabilities, read it from cover to cover and then maybe start shooting again.
    How's your end of the gene pool today?

    Buy some camo netting and sticks and stay on your permission?
