    Sounds interesting. How much will it cost?

  3. #3
    TT, On booking a place there is a 10 deposit which I am told will be refunded on your attendance at the event. This is confirmed on the booking form. For anybody new to the sport or having experience but shying away from taking level 1/2 a very worthwhile day.

    Thanks Gazza, I hadn't noticed the refund part. Certainly sounds like a worthwhile course.

    This day will be run in two separate sections the theory (in a class room ) and a practical section will be out in the countryside. The participants will be split in to two groups each group will do a Theory and a practical. One of the groups will start with the practical and then swap with the other group at lunch time.
    This is an open day and anyone can attend and it is free for all who attend. May i say at this time places are limited so if you are interested contact the emails on the notice or PM me through the site. If any one has any questions do not hesitate to ask.

    This day is a limited event at the moment it is just over 50% booked. Anyone thinking of taking up any of the qualification to reach required competency levels would be advised to go on a day like this. It is free and long established deer stalkers will be on hand to answer any questions.
    The event will have a deer officer from SNH who will answer any question any one might have about the deer code and standards. Forestry Enterprise will have some on on hand to demonstrate the risk assessment process covering deer management . They will also answer question on how to bid for FC leases.
