I'm doing my DSC in three weeks and have starter the revision. I'm a bit too near the 80% mark for comfort and cant be sure of the following. Can anyone assist with the definative answers? I can't seem to find them (looking too hard I suspect!!).
Any assistance gratefully recieved.
Q8. A buck whose antlers in season are a spongy mass of velvet (a perruque head) should:
a Be culled as it may become infected and he will probably die (I'm inclined to go for this)
b Be protected and must not be shot
c Be preserved as good breeding stock
d Soon come into hard antler and produces a normal head
31. Within woodlands, at what range are the majority of deer shot?

to shoot a red stag (out of season) because it is marauding on some turnips:

d It would never be legal for a paying guest to do so

normal circumstances which is most likely?
a For a buck’s territory to overlap with that of another buck

c For a buck to hold a territory trying to exclude all other mature bucks (I'm inclined to go for this)
d For a doe to hold an exclusive territory trying to exclude all other does including the kids of
159. During which month would you observe your roe deer to determine the previous year’s
recruitment to the population?
