    A good starting point is here on the SD. If there is something that you are not sure about there are plenty of people able and willing to help with some really useful advice

    Freerange,

    Worth bearing in mind that you don't actually need any qualifications for hunting deer in the UK.

    Obtaining any kind of certification is voluntary although some bodies that lease stalking may insist that some or all on the lease have them.

    What about stalkers from overseas? Is anyone barring them since they don't have DSC1/2?

    You don't need any qualifications to stalk in the UK. But the DSC1 is starting to become the normal.

    So coming from overseas is fine. If you are coming with your rifle you need a temporary import licence and I would highly advise insurance.

    Do not know what you mean by a "temporary import license".

    The only thing needed is a Visitors Firearms Permit. You can obtain this by asking your sponsor who must be resident in the UK, to complete a form. He will need a copy of your European Firearms pass to send to the police. Costs 12

    Double check that your continental insurance is valid in the UK, if not join SACS.

    Not mentioned yet one of the best if not the best is BEST PRACTICE GIUDANCE type that into the computer or send 25 plus p&p for a hard copy to BDS.org and it will give you all you need and more.
    IF you ever come to the UK you will find plenty of people on here who will take you out. Good Hunting.
