Right well i get my A level results on Thursday and I don't have a place at uni as i rejected my 3 offers that i had secured for history for one reason or another. So anyway there is a good chance i will be on a gap year if i can't find a place somewhere i want to be through clearing for a course i want to be on these being either history or land management...decisions decisions...
Anyway if i am on a gap year i don't know what to do with myself. This is as the more i think about it the less i want to go back packing around south east asia like my friends and the more i would like to get involved in some sort of a sporting placement maybe a ghillie or job in an rfd but who knows. The first thing i will be doing (probably even if i go to uni) is my dsc1 at Ilkley from 11th to 14th of september if there are any places left.
So my point is, I have very limited stalking experience so I may end up spending my time working on the farm and spending the money i earn on bought stalking and starting DSC2 and who knows I may scrape enough together for a trip on boar to eastern Europe. Or try and find some kind heart who would take me on for a pittance as a ghillie or assistant or something similar and learn the practical way. The floor i see in this is as i understand it most people looking to do such things have done a college course in deer management or something similar so I'm at a major disadvantage.
I hope you have caught my drift and can offer me some advice as to what would be better to do.
