I know its a long shot but are there any shooters out there who wouldnt mind a shooting buddy in the bristol or surrounding area!

Got a small peice of land though I dont want to wipe out everything on the land so looking to gain some more shoots.

Try the direct approach to farmers etc.Have all your documents such as membership to BASC etc. - insurance - testimonials.

Dress accordingly and be polite and quick,all farmers are tight with time and money Once you have land and do a good and honest job word will get round and you will get more invites.

This worked for me and I can shoot ferret and trap on about 1200+ acres and get occaisional invites to many more

Don`t be put off by a simple NO! apologise for wasting time and ask if you can leave your card........what do you mean you don`t have a card!!!!!!They`re easily made using word and clipart.

Best of luck bud

I was thinking of doing the direct approach! Though when is the best time to do it?

Meen farmers are always busy and sundays are like their day's off Ive been told

Best time is when you catch him not eating or fixing something mechanical

No easy routes,just stick with the polite and courteous route.

Best of British.
