    And then the poor bloke copped a load of shotgun pellets courtesy of les chasseurs,complained and then they cleared off – a bit off isn’t it?

    As an ex-chasseur in the UK, the mind boggles.

    Our local crew, blessed with shedloads of open countryside & woodland were trying to flush their quarry from a hedge running down the bottom of peoples’ gardens & got told to eff off which they did !

    Anyone know how many people these wannabe Rambos have shot so far this season?  There is usually a website somewhere that keeps a tally.

    France is the only country in Europe where in the hunting season, it is legal to hunt any day of the week.

    There have been mutterings about banning hunting on a Sunday to allow people who work during the week to be able to safely go out into the countryside – entirely reasonable.

    The recent killing of a woman in her own garden by a hunter who shot through a hedge without seeing what he was shooting at is an example of the slack, mindless attitude that seems to prevail amongst some chasseurs.

    That particular hunter has been charged with negligent manslaughter, and it would be a significant wake up call to the hunting fraternity if he were to be sentenced to a meaningful prison term – 10 years or so, pour encourager les autres.

    So much for the old crap about not being allowed to shoot within so many metres of a house.  :negative:

    Our vet says “I don’t care if they shoot each other – good riddance”

    I am not against hunting, if there were no hunting we would be up to our armpits in sanglier, cerf, reynard, lapin etc.

    What I am against is the apparent total disregard of any semblance of adherance to the rules of the safe use of firearms by some chasseurs, and their total disregard of the rules of where they are allowed to shoot, as in the telegraph article.

    We had a neighbour here – english – who is very excitable (to put it mildly). He once chased some chasseurs off his land and I saw them sitting at the side of the lane outside our house. so I went and spoke to them.

    The were very hurt and upset, said our neighbour had been “très impoli!”.

    He had called the gendarmes too, by which time this couple had disappeared.

    Friends were plagued by hunters in the woods adjoining their garden, they owned these woods and all reasonable approaches met with abuse.

    So they got some bangers and every time the hunters came they shouted they were going to shoot and let off the bangers!

    The first time the hunters called the flics but as the friends do not have a gun did nothing except warn the hunters about false complaints.

    After a few more incidents the hunters left them alone.

    :grin:
    The chasse around here are now more considerate about local residents. Because this is a cereal-growing and poultry area the farmers need to keep the fox sanglier and deer population under control.
    Haven’t had any complaints for some time now.
    Except I don’t like the shooting of quail in the harvested maize fields.
