    Well it will probably be self regulating. Flo needs to see your certificate before deer on your fac. No deer no stalking.

    I emailed SNH about this, it's not going to happen. The wane act dictates that a review of competency levels and deer welfare issues must be undertaken in 2014. Training providers have gotten together in light of this and decided to push people into dscone 'voluntarily' so that levels are high enough and change is not necessary.

    I posted the emails that I sent and recieved in a thread called 'minimum training standards' in the training section. They're on the last page. Read them and make up your own mind.

    It will happen and has happend if you are not qualified you will loose the right to shoot deer. 2014 is were SNH will decide if the voluntary sector can make it work ( best option for them) if not and there is no real push they will move in and set there own tests. (they dont want that)

    I'm sure they would just say that as of 20xx it will be law that DSC 1 is required to stalk deer, giving at least couple of years for all the non dsc1 holders to go out and get it before deer are removed from their licence.
