Sorry to be ignorant, I'm looking at registering for an upcoming DSC1, I'm a relative newcomer, done a few stalks etc and occasionally go ouit with a pal of mine for experience, (he also works on a deer farm so I've helped a few times with the butchery etc).
Basically my dilema is that I currently have no permission for stalking (plenty for bunnies but not deer) and after playing with the .22 for a while I want to get going on the 243 now and get onto some permission.
So chicken and egg scenario - I want to get my first 243 (friend holding onto a Sako 75 for when i want it), need some permission and want to get started (going on my own). Will I actually need the DSC1 on my journey to achieve this?? Is it something I might need for a syndicate? And if so would you reccomend purchasing gun first? What order etc.
As above, pls excuse my ignorance and be gentle with me please. Thanks in advance
