Thread: Passed my DSC1

    Smile Passed my DSC1

    Well i am now, officially, a trained hunter I have been on my DSC1 course over the passed 4 days and i have now passed. It was held at ilkley through the BDS and it was lead by Vince Reynolds of viper engineering. I found the whole course to be highly enjoyable and also educational and a great way to spend 4 days. I managed to ace all of the exams getting 20/20 on the visual test, 48/50 on the 'Written' paper and 39/40 on the game assessment test and i passed the safety test fine. I did have a bit more trouble with he shooting test for the knelt of sticks but this was stopped when i borrowed an extra long harris bipod (i only have the short one) from another member that soon solved the problem (mental not to buy one of these). So anyway i am over the moon to have passed it and would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone looking at doing it

    Personally I'd hang fire on that one. I think you'll find it much more worthwhile to practice using a pair or full size stalking sticks with a moveable rubber band allowing them to be set down to kneeling or sitting positions than limiting yourself to the bipod. IMHO far more versatile in the long run in practical situations.

    Looks like it will be a season of working on the farm and beating followed by a few month travelling with 5 other friends not sure if oz will happen or not though.

    Honestly i doubt it. we spent the best part of 2 days just doing the exams with the other 2 for learning and one of them lasted from about 9 until 6 so no i wouldn't have learnt as much but with plenty of preparation before and if you have experience you could pass but i think the 4 day course is well worth it however the exams could be condensed into one day i suppose.
