    Oh, and I'm not a whale. I don't spout, I verbalise.
    IMO there is very little point in this "type" of debate, the OP seeked permission to conduct a perfectly legal pastime, and was met with a tirade of reasons why he/she was wrong for doing so.....

    As i have never met you personally i cannot pass judgement as to whether you are a whale or not

    Back to the OP's question, the best way to gain the type of permission you are after is to knock on farmers/landowners doors and simply ask, some will say no, some will say yes, make sure you have all your certificates with you, and insurance from the likes of BASC etc and any written refferances from other landowners doesnt go amiss.

    Fair enough, that's your view; just one final point though. Only one of my responses was to biglad himself, when he started calling people names. (well I think he was) The rest have been to others that have put in their tuppence worth, like yersel.

    ....
    But the OP was not starting a debate. The OP asked a legitimate question. He did not attempt to justify shooting, nor criticise those who oppose it.

    If the OP was asking if there was anywhere offroad he could race a car - would we say that this was an invitation to critisise his choice of legitimate sport? Would he be subjected to a whole raft of insults and criticism because some disagree with noisy motor cars driven at speed? Would anyone asking when the next SNP political meeting in Caithness be met with this level of antagonism? I think not.

    I'll tell you what - lets all go over to the classified sections and start slating anyone who might be selling something we don't like.
    I personally think that anyone who buys clothes with 'BENCH' written across the arse must be a slapper. So I'm off to find some poor mare flogging a pair on here so I can give her the benefit of my boundless wisdom....

    Wrong!
    I used to regularly go sea fishing in my teens, and I also used to eat dead animals.
    Then I attained enlightenment
    Michael Stone is innocent.

    Just wait a wee minute here Mr Ego. Are you implying I waged an all out campaign against the biglad? As I previously pointed out, all, bar one, of my posts were to others that joined in, and I responded to points they made, just like this one. I never once asked for him to justify anything, but he did in fact criticise those who oppose it, which is up to him.

    If you look through the classified section, you actually will find posts, slating things some don't like. It happens all the time on here.

    So don't start jumping on me if you don't like what was said on this thread, and quoting me as if I had some vendetta against the guy.

    I am entitled to my opinion, as you are yours, but don't start singling people out for your attacks.

    Oh, a wee squeak fae the back.

    There is a big difference between animal control and shooting for fun.

    What is a narrow minded veg, and a lettuce and carrot crusher? Is this another attempt at humour? Is this as far as your vocabulary goes?

    Small minds are easily amused, as they say.

    Have you ever heard of Mother Nature?
    The theory goes that foxes and other animals kill & eat rabbits, and thus control the rabbit population, but then retards kill or poison these animals for sport so the theory goes out of window.

    Touchy, aren't we?

    You described this thread as a 'debate'. That's why I quoted your post - but it does not preclude other posters.

    The OP was not inviting 'debate' - just answers to his question.

    That's my point.

    Anyone who thinks randomly killing wildlife is fun and considers it a sport, is obviously missing a few grey cells. A hunt for those may be in order.

    He obviously has a big wooden spoon and had nothing better to do rather than just answer biglad's question.

    Just a reminder that this thread has been moved to the hobbies section, not the sport.

    Good call Org Moderator.

    Maybe we should have a Wooden Spoon Section, be tons of threads there.
