Just a wee note to say I passed my level 1 today. I decided on the weekend option at South Ayrshire Stalking http://www.ayrstalk.co.uk/ as I would struggle to find the time for a 3 or four day course. The are only 35 miles from my home so I could travel to and from without the need for an overnight stay as well.
Obviously there is alot of information to take in so a fair bit of home study was required before attending and Saturday was a revision day to iron out any creases with assessement on Sunday.
Pleased to say that I got 50/50 on the general paper & 40/40 om the large game/hygene and 20/20 on the visual so a 100% pass.
Mind you had 3 attempts at the 4" target but got the 6 shots in the roe killing area no problem first time.
Huge thanks to Chris, Anne and Glen @South Ayrshire Stalking for an enjoyable informative couple of days . Also thanks to Steve, Graham & Dave for the craic.
Just need to find a local (ayrshire) mentor to point me in the right direction (on my own ground) for level 2
