Pd states that you can use any land for any purpose for up to 28 days. Someone else has the sporting rights to my wood, inactive for 10 years but retains them all the same. Does any shooting by others count as part of the 28 days?

I'm no expert but I'd think if you don't own the sporting rights then, quite simply, you can't shoot.

Thanks for reply Phil. I was wondering if the 28 days applies to the land or the owner? Hypothetically if the holder of the sporting rights were to shoot game for 28 days , would that leave me with zero days for camping?

Don't know for sure but I would have thought the '28 day rule' doesn't come into the equation for shooting. My impression is that it relates mainly to the time that you can live on the land.

This is a subject that's been discussed many times on here so I'd suggest browsing the forum and doing a search for the relevant posts.

Where are you? In Scotland the sporting rights can't be owned separately to the land. Quite often they are leased out for long periods but ownership still with the land.
