...And so it begins

Rate this Entry
Afternoon All,

Firstly let me issue a few words of gratitude to all the people on SD who have made it possible for me to take the DSC-1; i am so grateful for the opportunity and i am really looking forward to beginning to learn all about stalking and deer management.

Here begins my blog which will catalogue, as JAYB put it, "my epic journey" to becoming a more experienced deer stalker. I'm filled with excitement and anticipation and I'm really looking forward to hearing from the BASC regarding the booking of the course. At the moment I am very busy writing my dissertation but come the summer I will have plenty of time to learn all of the material for the course so I hope you are all ready for several months of blog updates before you get to the end of the story. In terms of putting my best foot forward I have made a booking with Prometheus from the SD for a day's stalking in February which I am really looking forward to; I'm not sure he is ready for me to data-mine his experience and knowledge but I'm filled with novice questions.

I would really like to once again thank everybody involved in providing me with this phenomenal opportunity. I shall certainly be maintaining these blog entries to keep you all updated on my progress and because I think photos make a blog more interesting I shall leave you with this picture of a squirrel as I don't have any pictures cataloguing my DSC-1 journey just yet.
