    most affordable way to complete level 2

    Hi folks,

    I am just about to sit my level 1 and once completed hope to complete my level 2 as soon as possible.

    I don't want to sound like a tight a**e but, times are tough at the moment. I am wondering what is the most affordable way of completing the level 2 portfolio.

    cheers

    you can think of it like this, be wary of false economy

    If you spend a couple of days at say muntjac and bash a fair few you might find that spending the money compared to lots of petrol and days here and there trying to get cheap does will probly do you favour.

    Please dont take this the wrong way.

    Its great you are taking your Level 1, and then planning Level 2. But make sure you are prepared for Level 2. If you have only grassed a few deer your portfolio might be questioned, it is not mearly taking 3 deer.

    Level 2 is you being able to forfill all the criteria to shoot a selected cull animal field dress it, extract it and prepare it in the larder and be competent in all of it. You must then answer a series of questions by the AW and be signed off.

    I have had a number of people over the past 3 to 4 years who were not ready, so to save you time and money, make sure you have the experience before taking Level 2, it is not just a process to collect another piece of paper.

    Good luck

    When you are ready just as sikamalc said, you could consider Jelens package... But I can't agree more than making sure you are ready. It would be more costly to attempt it only to be asked to come back!!!

    I agree completely with 6pointer . . . . . Book a few days at the hinds, treat it as a learning exercise, listen to the stalker, get him to talk you through everything he is doing, learn all your lymph nodes outside in then find them on the beast. Read best practise as you may be questioned on it. Don't jump from L1 straight into L2 without lots of practise . . . . I had two years syndicate stalking between L1 and L2. You have three years to complete it so enjoy it and don't rush it. You will learn more that way.

    Thats an interesting idea DJC, can you recomend any AW's that are willing to do this and how much do they charge? JC
