Thread: shooting deer from vehicles

  1. #1

    shooting deer from vehicles

    Is it legal to shoot a deer from a vehicle, either using as a support or from within a vehicle? just wondering.

  2. #2
    I believe it is, as long as vehicle is parked with engine off?

    Vehicles: Section 4 of the Deer Act prohibits shooting from a moving vehicle, the vehicle must be stationary with the engine turned off. The vehicle may need to be adapted to provide:
    ♦ A means of preventing participants from falling from the vehicle or being injured when the vehicle is moving e.g. a safety cage in the bed of a pick up.
    ♦ A rest such as a shooting rail that provides a good support for the rifle when shooting and lifts the muzzle well clear of the supporting surface. Care must be taken to ensure that parts of the vehicle or its passengers cannot easily be brought into the line of fire.

    Or a towel wrapped round the wing mirror if sat comfortably in either seat
    in the front of the vehicle

    Do any of the training organisations run a DBS1 course? (Drive By Shooting) in case you were wondering!

    Just be sure there is plenty of tread depth on your rear door mounted spare wheel, stops the rifle slipping all over.
