I am just getting started with stalking after doing a lot of other forms of shooting for a few years. I am want to take my DSC1 to support the modification to my FAC and in order to learn more about the craft. As the course is expensive I thought it would be a good idea to find out if all courses are the same, or if some providers do a better job.
I am based in Gloucestershire/Oxfordshire, so the nearest places would be-
BDS in Cirencester
BASC in Andover
Wiltshire College in Lackham
Hampshire Deer Centre if they do one in Winchester
A bit further afield, requiring accommodation-
BASC in Thetford
UK Deer Management Services in Somerset
The one in Cirencester would probably be most convenient.
If anyone has any feedback on the above courses/providers it would be much appreciated. And to check, does the course fee (£250-300) include all training material you need?
