Law of Field Sports
Written by leading practitioners in the field,Law of Field Sportsis the first book on the Game Act 1831 for the best part of a century during which time there has been considerable reform of the law.
This book contains a detailed analysis of the civil and criminal law relating to shooting and hunting and offers a practical evaluation of the Hunting Act 2004.
The authors look at the law of poaching and control of shooting and hunting in terms of closed seasons and provide up-to-date precedents on the Ground Game Act 1880. A useful overview of pertinent firearms law is also included.
Land ownership of rural land is also covered so far as it relates to shooting and hunting, in particular the issue of how field sports rights are treated by the law of real property. The book also sets out the law appertaining to badgers, deer and other species managed in the countryside.
Law of Field Sportsprovides a comprehensive single source of reference that will prove invaluable for practitioners drafting game rights in sporting or farming leases, or defending those who might have fallen foul of the law and be facing prosecution in relation to game issues.
