I posted a thread a few weeks ago asking what were the requirements to become a mentor and got many replies. I wrote to my issuing force Dorset and put forward my case. I have only had my FAC 2.5 years and dont have much land and to be honest I wasnt that hopeful. But I included in the letter alot of information about my character and examples of culls I have attended complete with risk assessments,maps and advice for all situations such as lost deer and safety matters etc. I am pleased to say Dorset have agreed to 'open' my ticket in order I can mentor my friend and the stalks I take him on will now count.
