    Nothing, you just get it from the game keeper or land owner for culling. Any cost there may be is covered by them as you provide a service.
    yes those costs are covered by the service you provide.

    I was talking about when you apply to get a firearms licince, what do you have to do? How much does it cost you?

    you know how you get a drivers licince you pass the theory and practical tests and then youve got the licince, (costs like 200 max for the two tests and lessons)

    what do you for this?

    Cheers

    I don't hunt with Rifles, I had a .177 back in the day though.

    I Bow hunt and im using a Hoyt Katera at the moment, it's got such punch and has really improved my clean kill rate for Deer and larger game.
    some one told me bow hunting was against the law :confused:

    Mostly deer up in the Highlands and around the moor's but Ive been known to try my hand at bird and small vermin as well rabbit/badger/squirrel.

    I was once blessed enough to be able to hunt oryx in Africa, which I can safely say was one of the best moments of my life.

    Yourself?

    If you have a valid reason, such as pest control, or you eat the animals you shoot, I don't see anything wrong with that.

    We're having major problems with foxes around us, so I'm getting an application in for a .243, and .17HMR. We have around 35 acres, smack bang in the middle of nowhere, with no houses or main roads within miles, so there should be no problem.

    I used to hunt rabbits and hares with my .22 S410, but haven't in the last few years.

    We live on a farm, and are planting christmas tree saplings on one of our fields, obviously to grow and sell. Deers are the main threat to saplings, so an application for a .308 may be in order!

    I got my S410 about 7 years ago, and it was about £650 scoped. They're both the same inside, just with a different action, the S410 being a side-lever, rather than bolt action. The S510 has an integrated silencer aswell.

    The S410 is mega accurate, and will hit 5p size groups at 50 yards.

    As for the previous posts about getting a firearms licence, I've just got mine, so I can shed some light on the issue. A shotgun and firearm application costs £60. The police like to keep regulations really tight, and you will need a gunsafe, and an ammunition safe.

    If you want a firearms certificate (FAC), you need a "good reason" for it, which can be membership at a club (you will need signed and sealed documentation of this), or written permission to shoot pests on land. For the latter, you need to enclose a map of the land, with written permission of the owner. The police will then check the land, and deem if it is suitable for the calibre you want, and if they believe the land to be unsafe, ie. Too close to houses, they will reject the application.

    In terms of ease to acquire the more powerful the calibre is, the more difficult they are to get: an FAC air rifle (over 12ft/Ibs) is the easiest, followed by a .22LR rimfire, then a .17HMR rimfire, then the centerfire calibres, which are used for foxes and deer.

    Like said, the firearms certificate is harder to get than the shotgun, but you need a "good reason" or the police will have none of it.

    You can still do target shooting. Right?
