I had permission yrs ago from the owner of the local piggery to shoot the rats. Worse thing I ever did is corner a few of them.

If you join BASC you get pl insurance included, and as I farmer myself I wouldnít even consider anyone with being a member.

As for gaining permission, well thatís the hardest part. Most farms will have someone already or they just donít want any one at all. My advice is to ask gamekeepers as well if they want some to help out with feeding etc and in return gain some shooting there. Squirrels are just as much a pain as rats tbh so offer that too. Itís very hard to get permissions to shoot, woujd you want a stranger walking around your garden with a rifle ? Air rifle or .308 it doesnít make a difference to many. Just donít give up asking, but be prepared for a lot of noís. Dress reasonably- not camo , be polite, tell them youíre a member of BASC if you join, donít be pushy but offer to leave your card incase they have issues in the future.

If you've not got a rifle yet I'd get permission before you buy one, they can be like rocking horse poo to get.

Yeah just farm owners land permission, don't think it's a legal requirement to have the PL insurance but probably a good idea. And make sure you're rating for the airgun is in the right limit else classed as a firearm

I quite fancy doing a bit of Airgunning for rats,Iím assuming Iíll need liability insurance from what Iíve read on the net? Iím not sure how popular it is but if anyone does it I wondered how you go about getting permissions on farm land etc to shoot or if itís a case of who you know?
Just looking for abit of info to see if itís worth doing as something to break up the fishing abit.
TIA
