Get up to date on the 2018 gen­eral li­cences

Sporting Shooter - - News -

As many will know, gen­eral li­cences per­mit peo­ple to per­form cer­tain ac­tions re­lat­ing to wildlife, which would oth­er­wise be il­le­gal, with­out the need to ap­ply for in­di­vid­ual li­cences; they cover rel­a­tively com­mon sit­u­a­tions where there is un­likely to be any sig­nif­i­cant con­ser­va­tion im­pact.

Al­though you don’t need to ap­ply to use a gen­eral li­cence, it is es­sen­tial that the li­cence you plan to use is ap­pro­pri­ate and that you meet the li­cence con­di­tions in full.

Gen­eral li­cences are re­newed an­nu­ally in Eng­land, Scot­land, Wales and North­ern Ire­land, and we urge our read­ers to head over to www.basc.org. uk/shoot­ing/gen­eral-li­cences to view the most up to date in­for­ma­tion on gen­eral li­cences and en­sure you are op­er­at­ing within the law in 2018.
