This day is a limited event at the moment it is just over 50% booked. Anyone thinking of taking up any of the qualification to reach required competency levels would be advised to go on a day like this. It is free and long established deer stalkers will be on hand to answer any questions.
The event will have a deer officer from SNH who will answer any question any one might have about the deer code and standards. Forestry Enterprise will have some on on hand to demonstrate the risk assessment process covering deer management . They will also answer question on how to bid for FC leases.
