Thread: BDS Survey

  1. #1

    BDS Survey

    I don't know how many of you have completed this.

    I just did a couple of days ago. Now, I may be being cynical, but rather than a poll of members to gather useful data around the direction BDS might take in future or crafting a better proposition to the membership, it felt much more like profiling members for the purposes of selling marketing data to suppliers who would see the membership as a key target to flog to....... With a bit of the other stuff thrown in

    Any thoughts?

    Yes, seemed more interested in everything one got up to away from deer rather than deer/stalking itself.
    I can see why they want to understand how we'd like to see improvements in content or delivery but it got to the stage where I wouldn't have been surprised if they'd asked inside leg measurements and preferred airline...


    Like you say, though, I filled it in regardless and hope it helps in some way. Who knows, if only the three of us filled it in then we must be in with a good chance of winning those bins!

    I'm afraid it's 5 in for the bins. I gave them the benefit of my opinions on the bits that matter, the obvious profiling questions I either ignored or lied ... much like most of the electorate questioned by the pollsters, apparently ....

    I think it was about understanding the type of members that they have, i.e. all hunting/shooting/fishing types or more diverse.

    When did this come about? Had no request to fill in a survey.
