Lamping is not really legal;  the Authorities turn a blind eye to this activity as it is recognised that it is a very effective way of clearing large areas of rabbits. Lamping depends on the fact that most wildlife can be “frozen” by beams of very powerful bright light, foxes and badgers are often shot at on lamping forays. Animals get used to the white beams traversing across the fields, so after two or three visits red filters are used on the lamps, shooting accuracy is not as good, leaving more injured animals.  A very recent practice is to use invisible night sights; a great deal of skill is required to use these sights properly. Please contact us on any of above as the situation arises.
