    Get hold of the BDS manual, learn the contents, practise the shooting positions both by dry & live firing as much as possible to obtain comfortable & steady shooting positions. The BDS Deer identification DVD is also useful.atb Tim

    You find the Jelen Deer Services Interactive Learning Centre a very useful tool. I think they give you access if you book your DSCL1 through them - they run courses monthly down the A34 from you.

    Welcome to the site, a bit of an introduction would not go amiss.

    Purchase the question disc from BDS or another reputable source and study.

    The shooting test

    3 shots at zero target at 100 yds

    3 shots at deer target (used to be a roebuck but now its a deer) - have to be in the 4 inch K zone

    3 shots kneeling at 70 yds same deer target

    3 shots seated at 40 yds same target

    all shots have to be within the 4 inch circle.


    Practice with YOUR kit is the only way to pass the test.

    You wont be "coached" on the test - if you are the people running it arnt doing YOU or their credibility any favours.

    You also need to be safety concious, muzzle awareness and unloading rifle when crossing obstacles etc for the safety test....

    May I suggest you join a rifle club. Most good ones can give coaching in shooting to improve your levels of comfort and confidence. The rest you can do from discs as already mentioned and some field craft practice in the field of course.

    Even shooting an air rifle will improve your shooting skills.

    Contact the BDS & take it from there.
