69. Shooting tenant's rights.

The shooting tenant may have obtained his rights over game:

  1.  

    (1)     from the owner-occupier; or

  2.  

    (2)     from an owner who has let his land but reserved his shooting rights; or

  3.  

    (3)     from an occupying tenant where the rights have not been reserved.

In all these cases the shooting tenant may have either the right to shoot the game or general shooting and sporting rights1. Subject to this he takes, in cases (1) and (2), precisely those rights which the owner himself would have had. In case (1), however, the owner retains his occupier's rights under the Ground Game Act 18802.
