Thread: Getting a FAC without land ??

    Getting a FAC without land ??

    Hi all,

    Im new to the site and deer stalking, I have'nt got a FAC yet but a question I have is can I get a FAC if I dont have own land/permission of my own?? I have land that I use for hunting with hawks but this land is surrounded by coastal paths and homes nearby. I would only be using my rifle to go to paid stalks/holidays and events ran by BASC. Would this stop me getting a Licence because I have no land available and just want to do paid stalks??

    Any help is greatly appreciated and if in wrong section please let me know.

    No problem at all I'd book a couple of stalks with pro stalkers then use the confirmation letters with your application it's not at all unusual for fac applicants to use paid stalks as thier good reason in fact that was how I got my first centrefire rifle ( but already had fac for rimfire ) you should have no problems

    Many thanks Ive been worrying that this would stop me, as i read and searched loads of places for information on it and all I can find is that need permission on land, ive wrote to over 30 farms asking for permission but most already have granted permission to someone else and have put my details on records incase they drop out.
    Thank you for making me more settled on the matter.

    Many including my own licensing authority will not grant a FAC for paid stalks only, they want to see at least one piece of nominated land, also you need that nominated piece of land to get your expanding ammunition conditions.

    I believe you can provided you can show proof of booked stalking.
    You may be better off booking some stalking and borrowing the estate rifle until you get some experience

    Yes this is what I plan to do as Im not someone to rush into it and want to learn and gain as much experience as I can before going into it.

    Having gained the dsc1 would help I think.

    You'll enjoy it and make some shooting contacts too.

    Yeah I've already booked myself onto a course end of the year as this was the only available place on one down my way.

    its exactly what TVP insisted for my application....
