1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    the best thing to do mate is to pay the farmer
    a visit and ask for permission to shoot on his land
    it may take a while and a lot of calls ,but in the end you
    will be lucky,dont expect to pay anything usually the farmer
    will be glad your getting rid of all the vermin for him,
    dont forget to be polite ,and dont go all cammoed up
    most of all dont stop trying you will get permision in the end;)

    I would reccommend you go to www.basc.org.uk/content and register (there is a fee payable) the farmer will feel a lot more inclined to say yes if you have liability insurance

    Also on the same website go to www.basc.org.uk/content/shooting_rights_permit/home print the form off (pdf) and when you have a yes from a farmer make sure he agrees to it by signing it

    BASC is a good site to go for info on shooting in thid country


    Good luck

    Permission to shoot

    Most landowners who need pest control would let you shoot for free if they knew and trusted you.Perhaps if you were to offer a days labour in advance to get to know each other.Its a much more sincere offer than just cash.It says more about you and is probbably cheaper in the long run.
    There's always something anyone can do on/in a farm/forest that the landowner hasn't the time for.
    Insurance cover really helps.

    Correct to all above.

    a few pointers that have worked for me.

    1. No Camo
    2. Bring wife/girlfriend or any woman with you dressed like a country wench, jeans, fleece etc etc...Puts them at ease.
    3. Don't say their Land just say is their a field you have problems with.
    4. Make sure you get the Gamekeeper or Land owner and not a Farm hand because he will tell you NO.
    5. And Last and this is very important talk politly and if turned down say 'Do you know anywhere else or farmer who might be interested'.
    He may no someone with huge warren or rat problems you can try.
    Word of mouth will get you land in the end.

    You will get some but Footwork will be required:up:
