The DCS have just met to discuss the current proposal by Senior DCS Staf that all stalkers in Scotland must have a compulsory test from themselves. No test no stalking in Scotland. This can be viewed from the DCS website , meetings 261/9.
This is being backed by two other organisations but not BASC..
This is just a revenue generator and i would expect all members to make their feelings known.
They say that they will keep it as cheap as possible! Which is what?
£250 or more....
The other oranisations that have approved this move are hoping to get the opportunity to do the training..
If this proposal goes through then you will not be able to own a deer rifle or stalk in Scotland without first passing a DCS test, and as compulsory testing goes then the it will be closely followed by legislation from the Firearms Authority! No Test no Gun..
I can only hope that the Representions from BASC were enough to dissuade them from continuing with this madness..
