Did the SLDG-sponsored level 1 this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Paul's teaching approach was spot-on and a couple of evenings looking at Deer Stalking Certificate 1 Training - Home learning certainly helped (as did the countless hours digesting stuff off here...) so I was pretty confident with the 3 theory papers. Less so with the shooting but I managed that OK after 1 false start on the 100m zeroing target and was really pleased with the 6 shot group on the roe target for the 3 positions. Glad deer don't have target rings on them cause it puts me right off!
Thanks to Davie for organising and to Paul and Andrew for the teaching/assessment. Now I just need to get my FAC application done and away!
