    Someone on here started a thread around the question you pose,I haven't seen any more on it, might have a look thru later see if I can find it, that's if someone else doesn't come up with it first.

    I think you're referring to the Deer Manager's Course? BDS run one and Jelen is just starting one up as well.

    What the hell do you want more training for? Once you have done a level 2 that should be all you need.

    Try a dogs for deer course that is the way forward to have a reliable tracking dog.

    Hi Lovatscout,

    We are running our new season of Advanced Deer Management Courses commencing in March at our Hampshire Training Centre.

    This LANTRA APPROVED course is delivered by some of the UK's foremost deer managers - working as professionals in their own right, in some of the country's most parks and sporting estates.

    Hi Mike,

    can i ask who is doing the dogs for deer bit in your deer management course as i thought the section they did in the BDS course was very poor,

    or do you to think there is no need for a deadicated deer dog in deer management,

    if this is the case you should ceck out my thread in dogs for deer on this site

    i could not see any info on your site

    Regards Tony

    Mike,

    I think you mean Lantra Awards? Lantra who are a non profit government quango do not approve courses they only set standards Lantra Awards are there profit making wing and will approve any bespoke course for a fee if it meets criteria set out by the National Occupational Standards.

    The BDS deer management course will have the same legal standing.

    I suggest you have a look at the LANTRA Center-fire/Fox control Level 2 course - I did mine between the DCS1 and DSC2 - lots of things you learn on this course are useful for deer stalkers as well - it has also helped me getting permissions. It was almost a bridge too far for me - the first time I failed on firearms safety, marksmanship and the night lamping assessment. However was given the opportunity for a re-assessment and got through this time - just.
    Lantra Awards | Fox Control (Centre Fire Rifle): Safety, Theory and Practice - Level 2

    Bizarrely there doesn't seem to be a 'Level 1' option - this course is targeted at people who work professionally in conservation and for big estates in game-keeping.

    No sarcastic comments please from those who are 'against' any form of training or qualifications - any positive or constructive comments are of course welcome.

    Lantra Awards not Lantra - it even says it in the title.

    I have done that one as well and found it fairly useful - we had to do it on the estate for HSE.

    Yep,

    My apologies, you are correct it is Lantra Awards.
