Deer Management Qualifications (DMQ) exists to promote high standards in the humane management of wild deer. This objective is supported by the deer industry and is achieved by providing candidates with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and competence through Deer Stalking Certificates: DSC1 and DSC2.
The DSC1 is designed to test the knowledge of candidates. It has been felt that all too often now the questions and answers are being taught by rote by providers rather than the actual knowledge. For that reason, from 1 April 2013 the question bank has been revised for all future tests. The new bank will not be published. A team of experts in the field will now meet twice a year to update the question so it should remain a test of knowledge not just knowledge of the answers.
This web site continues to provide initial information to potential candidates for DSC1 and DSC2; and
to inform current holders of DSC1 and DSC2 of changes to the standard, best practice, and other news.
