Our neighbour is a member of the local chasse and regularly leaves 'presents' at our gate in rather bloody carrier bags. My husband asked him if he could go along one day, but was told no, he had to have a hunting ' Godfather'. How do you get one?
Have a look on the AngloINFO INFOrmation page there's a whole section on hunting and where to go to get a licence. As for a 'godfather' can't help you there I'm afraid, not being a hunter myself, usual advice as with almost everything, Ask a neighbour.
