Wildfowling Permit Scheme
Exclusive to BASC members, this scheme provides shooting opportunity for those members wishing to experience wildfowling in different parts of the country or even to get their first taste of the sport.
BASC affiliated wildfowling clubs and other organisations provide scheme details to BASC, who produce the Wildfowling Permit Scheme Booklet. This booklet is designed for both the novice and experienced wildfowler and includes details of where you can get wildfowling permits in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Permits are offered by many BASC wildfowling clubs, various countryside organizations and local authorities.
If you would like to try wildfowling for the first time, or just visit new parts of the country, the BASC wildfowling permit scheme will help you find shooting. If you would like to go wildfowling, but are not a member of a wildfowling club, then this booklet gives you information on where you can go shooting.
There are also informative sections on wildfowling and the law, the type of shot that should be used and a section on fieldcraft, including on the use of tide tables and a list of quarry species. In most cases, unless you are very experienced, you will be accompanied to the foreshore by a member of the permit issuing club.
For the experienced wildfowler the permit scheme offers you the chance to test your skills over a new piece of ground.
The booklet is updated every season, and is available free of charge to BASC members. If you would like a copy please email your name and address (including postcode) to the Wildfowling department or send an SAE to:
