Payment for beating, picking up, loading, and selling shot game:
The BASC policy only covers recreational activities, however, we recognise that some members will take a small payment in cash or in kind as a result of their recreational activity. In most cases this payment, such as it is, will barely cover expenses; never the less it’s important that members are clear on when the BASC policy will protect them and when or if they need additional cover. Indemnity under the BASC members policy includes the activities of members engaging in recreational shooting activities who make a commercial gain from the sale of meat or other small income derived from such recreational shooting activities, provided this is not their primary source of income.
However, if you are formally engaged by a commercial shoot to attend on specific days to undertake a specific task such as beating, picking up or loading, then you will be employed by the shoot and covered under the shoots Employer Liability cover.
If you hire yourself out as a loader, coach, pest controller , stalker/ deer manager etc, you will need additional cover for this commercial activity; see here: https://basc.org.uk/membersoffers/bespoke-insurance-policies/shooting-professionals-policy/
