Thread: Dsc1 Done!

    Dsc1 Done!

    Hi all

    Got back this weekend from a week in Epping, Essex, where I was attending the DSC1 course. It was a really good week, I learned a lot, even though I had really mugged up on the course material beforehand! Peter Pursglove was leading it, and he was great - a man who is clearly very experienced with everything deer stalking-related. My thanks to him for a very well-taught week.

    Anyway, I know I've passed visual identification, safety, and shooting, just gotta wait 4 or 5 weeks to hear back about the other two and therefore the course as a whole! I'm fairly confident, and can't wait to (hopefully) receive my certificate

    I'm itching to get my variation for a deer legal caliber sent off, but I'm just going to wait a little longer until I've got some more on-the-ground experience; I have been lucky enough to have had a couple of very kind offers from people who are willing to let me join them on their stalks - I really appreciate this.

    Anyway, the course definitely confirmed for me how much I want to get into deerstalking, I'm so glad I did it!

    Well done mate. Recently did mine elsewhere and was confident I'd passed. 2 weeks later my stickyfoot arrived confirming I had. Not long to wait!

    Jelen DSC1 Revision Software

    Having flunked DSC1 first time around, found for 20 the Jelen package (bought at the Brock & Norris stand at CLA 2010) covering the main paper (400 plus Qns) and Deer ID to be superb as a refresher, allowing me to pass with v high marks, through the v well run Cirencester BDS group.

    Well done! I passed a few months ago, a good feeling indeed, we all got told on the day, well There was a spreadsheet on the projector with who passed and who didnt and who got what scores on what test. Great tuition, and a great bunch of lads attending the course! I only did the 2 day exams instead of the 4 day course. Worked out a 160. Damn good, and going to do the DSC1 but all in good time! Now waiting 7 weeks on my variation!
