    DSC I Questions - Need assistance

    Hi,
    I'm doing my DSC in three weeks and have starter the revision. I'm a bit too near the 80% mark for comfort and cant be sure of the following. Can anyone assist with the definative answers? I can't seem to find them (looking too hard I suspect!!).
    Any assistance gratefully recieved.
    Regards,
    IN

    Q8. A buck whose antlers in season are a spongy mass of velvet (a perruque head) should:

    a Be culled as it may become infected and he will probably die (I'm inclined to go for this)

    b Be protected and must not be shot

    c Be preserved as good breeding stock

    d Soon come into hard antler and produces a normal head

    31. Within woodlands, at what range are the majority of deer shot?

    a Under 100 metres (I'm inclined to go for this)

    b 100 – 150 metres

    c 150 – 200 metres

    d 200 – 300 metres

    94. You are visiting an estate in Scotland to stalk hinds in December. The stalker tells you

    to shoot a red stag (out of season) because it is marauding on some turnips:

    a You may do so only if it is actually in the turnip field

    b You may only do so if you have been named on an authority from Scottish Natural Heritage (I'm inclined to go for this)

    c You may only do so if you have actually seen the damage yourself and judge it to be serious

    d It would never be legal for a paying guest to do so

    150. Roe bucks and does tend to defend a territory throughout the summer months. Under

    normal circumstances which is most likely?

    a For a buck’s territory to overlap with that of another buck

    b For a buck’s territory to be the same size and shape throughout its life

    c For a buck to hold a territory trying to exclude all other mature bucks (I'm inclined to go for this)

    d For a doe to hold an exclusive territory trying to exclude all other does including the kids of

    that year

    159. During which month would you observe your roe deer to determine the previous year’s

    recruitment to the population?

    a October

    b March

    c June (I'm inclined to go for this)

    d August

    202. The majority of highland red deer when resting:

    a Usually lie down watching uphill

    b Usually lie down watching downhill

    c Don’t appear to favour any direction (I'm inclined to go for this)

    d Turn round constantly to keep a look-out in all directions
