I've been fortunate enough to have been given one of the bursaries from the Stalking Directory to take a DSC 1 course. So, I just wanted to thank all those that have been so generous and made the bursaries happen.
I've booked my course through Peter at BASC, who was very helpful and informative on what I might expect. The course isn't until November, so I've got lot's of time to prepare and wade through the enormous document with all the key information. It'll also give me a chance to get some all important shooting practice in, particularly on the sitting, kneeling and standing shots, which will be new to me.
I've got a couple of stalking trips booked before the course, so hopefully they'll give me chance to get some hands on experience too.
Steve from DSC training has also very kindly offered a free month trial of his website www.dsctraining.org to help us on our way. I reckon being a bit more interactive this will make soaking up the info a bit easier.
I plan to post updates on how I'm getting on in the build up to the course and the outcome, but in the meantime any advice from anyone on getting through the DSC 1 course will of course be much appreciated.
All the best.
