Thread: Building High Seats for Deer Control - day training course.

    Building High Seats for Deer Control - day training course.

    Folks

    Date (TBC) MAY 30th 2009

    I will shortly be running another one day 'High seats for deer & fox'' course at 75 per person. Please get in touch by PM if interested, it will be held here in Devon and naturally, the cost includes your lunch!



    We will deal with free-standers that fold flat for transport into site, 'lean-to' versions that offer easy construction and cover from view, as well as protection from the weather - and finally, fully enclosed permanent German style 'Kanzeln'.

    Easy to construct and transport, offering comfort and a steady shooting position - they are often the safest way to shoot an area, and at a unit cost @50 for a double seat, are very economical!

    During the day, we cover design, construction, siting and maintenance issues - as well as the H&S & liability concerns that every stalker must be aware of.

    By the end of the course, you will have built the three basic high-seat models and will have an appreciation of all the factors concerning high-seats. It will be a great day working with other stalkers/pest controllers, and you come away with a lot of practical knowledge - as well as the designs and cutting lists for every high-seat you might need to build!

    Hah! Sounds like a plan - was thinking of cheap Belgian beer, but if you insist on Cider........

    Are you thinking of bringing a herd of your trainees along? Let me know if so, I will need to get in a bulk order for the Cornish Pasties!

    Hi Ian,
    Nah, just thinking of a day out .
    I was brought up 'down that way' so Cider sprang to mind but if it's Belgian Beer then so be it! !

    If any are interested and live between my place, Stonhenge area, and the venue, I am willing to give a lift just for the company.
    I did not say subject to date and location but that goes without saying.
    If I am expected to be in London collecting my Lottery winnings on the same day I think London might win
