    I presume you have all the question banks, so go through them, make sure you know all the answers, think about the safety assessment and mentally play the possible scenarios through in your head ............ and you will be fine ;-)

    Yes number one enjoy it. Number two learn the open season dates not the closed season ones listed in the manual...all the questions relate to the open season!

    Hi

    When you're doing your safety assessment make sure you look all around the "target" not just directly at it. Also learn the different distinguishing features of the deer. Most in mine were obvious, but i got caught out on one. Just saw the first ID feature and went with that rather than checking off all the different features.

    All the best and let us know how you go on

    on the safety walk, relax and don't shout the answers out as you think of them. Start at the beginning and work through what you know. A lot of people jump in and get a bit stuck when they panic.
