Thread: Could DSC 2

    Could DSC 2

    Not theoretically be done by a deer farmer who's an AW and is interested in hosting DSC 2 classes and sign-off's by using his farmed deer? just a thought to make the process easier and faster...

    I think park/captive deer are now not allowed for DSC2 purposes

    Wonder why, it might actually entice a lot more people to do it...

    Are you suggesting that DSC2 is to be taken lightly and obtained on a whim.

    Based on your scenario,

    1. Probably no deer identification required
    2. No stalking involved
    3. Not sure the farmer could sustain sufficient numbers to cope with the 'throngs' of DSC2 applicants
    4. Not the ethos that DSC2 is attempting to promote in terms of competence to stalk, shoot and prepare deer for food chain

    So IMHO a non-starter

    1. Probably no deer identification required - Have you ever been to Woburn?
    2. No stalking involved - Do it according to Macnab rules.
    3. Not sure the farmer could sustain sufficient numbers to cope with the 'throngs' of DSC2 applicants - You really should go to Woburn!

    Your point 4 trumps the above, but imagine the fun!!!!!!!

    I always thought DSC 2 was really about hygienic gralloching and safe culling, where deer identification and other aspects are dealt with in DCS 1.

    No, its about Firearm safety, stalking, identification of beast, shot placement, reaction to shot, health of the beast (before & after) hygiene, etc, etc, etc.

    I think shooting captive deer will not demonstrate the majority of skills required for DSC2.

    Bang on, we know that Park/Farmed deer have to be culled but its only selecting the individual beast & marksmanship that is involved, its just not DSC2 material.
