Code of conduct for fox drives

 

Since the setting up of the Game Hunting Compensation Fund in 1984 a large percentage of personal accidents occur at activities like fox drives. If the following guidelines are adhered to it will make your fox drives much safer and may prevent a serious accident.

 

  • One person in charge of guns preferably the Club Safety Officer or if you have not elected a Club Safety Officer as yet it would be advisable to select one person from your committee who would be responsible for safety on the day.
  • All guns placed in likely places close to cover.
  • No person allowed shoot into cover.
  • All participants must know where the guns are positioned.
  • No moving out of position until the drive is completed. (Signalled by long whistle blast).
  • Immediately after the drive is completed all guns must be unloaded or broken.
  • One person in charge of beaters. He/she must keep the beaters in line at all times, and he/she is the only person who can shoot at a fop going back. No other beater will    carry a gun.
  • When members of your club are out game hunting please remind them of the NARGC golden rule - 2 persons but not more than three shooting together.
