    DSC2 - Advise/Help please

    Hi All,

    After a few years of mulling over the DSC2 i've now decided to bite the bullet so to speak and get it done.

    I'm just going through the registration process and would like to take a weeks holiday during the last week of January to work through the 3 accredited stalks for my portfolio.

    With this in Mind I'm looking for a mentor to help me through this phase who has access to some land and is registered as a witness.

    I normally head to Scotland at this time of year and would love some late hinds or possibly Sika during the week and I'm on a budget as most of us are now days!

    I'd welcome any advice, help or recomendations of somewhere suitable from anyone that's taken the DSC2.

    Many thanks

    Robbo25

    suggestion Yes ,

    You've taken a few years to mull over it (your Words) whats the hurry now you've got three years after the registration ??

    As for a budget so you want to pay for it ??

    hi widows son,
    think i can understand what he is getting at when he says he would like to get the three done in jan, my way of reading it is that yes you have three years to get the three stalks in but if your there on the ground then why not try for the three in one hol to get them over and done with ?

    just another way to look at it is when you decided to take your driving test did you not want to do it straight away or did you want to spread your lessons over three years ??

    as for the budget thing guess he is willing to pay for someones time to teach him right from wrong and guide him in the right direction so in my opinion i cant see a problem with that either.

    please accept my apologies if i have read or mis understood your reply

    good luck with it all robbo and hope ya get sorted

    all the best

    I'm with you on this one Jimmy, I fail to see what the issue is..............If the lad wants it done asap and not over three years so what? Wants to pay for the pleasure and to be taught properly, crack on I say.

    Jimmy / Cadex100 thanks very much for your thoughts and response to Widows son.

    Your correct in your thoughts of where I'm at with the DSC2 and how i'd like to approach it.

    Widows son, Appreciate your comments too.. and as an additional bit of info I head north 2 or 3 times a year for the red's when/if money allows.

    Whilst I have access to a few small blocks of land for the Deer in Hampshire, I love the hill and the Red's and Sika's which present a different type of challange.

    Now days SNH/Forestry commission want the DSC2 as the minimum qualification and with a possible syndicate place as a slightly cheaper option to what I normally do.. I need to get qualified to open as many opportunities or options to me.

    All the best

    Don't think its so much 'powers of observation' other than the post not being particularly clear.
