    15 for the day according to the cumbria woodlands website. I doubt that they'll be covering the deer code for Scotland, but if you want it from someone that'll know what the code for Scotland is call Mr Boston, he'll know.

    speak to Alistair re Deer Code Scotland -

    The three topics as far as I am aware are Firearms, Risk Assessments and Carcass Handling.


    I understand that the event is 30 per person , but if you meet certain criteria the cost is reduced 50% and subsidised by Cumbria Woodlands I am not 100% on the criteria for discount, but I think one may be if you are resident of Cumbria.

    The day is very good value - a copy of Best Practice alone is worth 25....

    Inputs from any of the three speakers would be worth the attendance fee in my book.

    Doesn't the Scottish code come under the SNH best practice, and the Deer Initiative covers England and Wales best practice?

    1995 The reason i asked was there was a joint event and the target audience was English stalkers they will still need to use the Deer code when stalking in scotland.
