just after a bit of advice if possible. I've never been great at the whole knocking on doors approach and also never been successful at it. All of my Falconry Permission has come from word of mouth, neighbouring farms etc who I've built a good relationship with. I dress smart, believe I act the part, act responsible etc.
Anyway, none of my permission stretches onto any Deer land (yet - hoping to see Muntjac in one place soon, but only around 35acres), therefore I expect door knocking or forking out for a syndicate is possibly my best option.
I've recently passed my DSC1 but still don't feel confident knocking doors as an unknown and as stated my current trusted permissions for my Falconry and my 22LR don't hold Deer - What a predicament and I doubt an uncommon one.
I had hoped to perhaps find a door of some description after my DSC1 and I'm by no means giving up yet I'm struggling to see a way in at present, I live in the West Midlands and travel to my permission, I'd certainly be an outsider on any Deer Permission etc.
I now fear that although I really enjoyed the DSC1 and learnt alot that it's actually put me no closer to obtaining the right kind of permission. Is the general feeling that DSC2 would open doors that I'm unaware of (a register of some description perhaps) or should I expect the best chances will come from word of mouth at present if I keep chipping away at the rabbit permission etc?
Sorry for the long post but wanted to explain the situation as oppose to just having a moan as I've been looking into it for a good while now but still managing to get nowhere.
Thanks in Advance
