I used to do it regularly. One of my permissions had a public footpath running entirely through the centre of it. It wasn't unusual for me to meet people walking along it. By placing signs at each end of it walkers knew there was the possibility of seeing me with an unbagged rifle on it or crossing it.
There's all sorts of shooting that's done in public places that by design the public are largely unaware of.
The black helicopters are never far away down here anyway, but usually they're far more preoccupied with sinking their back ends into Poole harbour and picking up soggy frogmen in their dingies.
