    dcs1 bursary at Greenlee

    I travelled up Thursday night to go out stalking with my friend mike. the wind was against us so wasn't very productive but still a very nice outing. woke up Friday morning and had arranged to go earlier as I was abit worried about the shooting off sticks as I haven't really done this before. I had a practice and realised it was actually quiet easy. the rest of the group turned up and we headed to the class room. we discussed what the course entailed and covered some parts of the manual. we called it and we headed to the local pub for tea. we started at 9am the next morning and started prepping for the test. we covered recossion to start and then the test. followed by hygiene then the test. we finished at 530 and off I went to pub in my van until I caught the sump on a rock and put a big hole in it. Sunday we started at 930 running the safety stalk which was just common sense in my eyes and it is nothing to worry about. followed by the shooting test. then to finish up we did the exam. I felt confident going into the exam as jon Snowdon is very good at passing his knowledge on. he is a very helpful guy and I cannot recommend him enough. I would say if you are going to do the dsc1 I would seriously think about greenlee no matter were you are in the uk. it has very clean accommodation and amazing breakfast. everything you need is on site set in a beautiful area of Northumberland. I would just like to thank the site for the chance to doo the qualification on the bursary and I am very grateful to jon (roestalker). and patrikt for the help he provided. I met some great people fife stalker. and a big thanks to hogey for the tow back down the lane were I had to wait 3 hours for the rac he is a true gent.
    all in all it was a truly amazing weekend and I would recommend doing the dsc1 to anyone. it is very factual and stands you in good stead for your stalking.

    Hello Adam, Iam pleased that you enjoyed the course, I certainy enjoyed the craic, and the ribbing about checking the zero on my rifle, that said, I was astounded to see how far it was out, but after a little tweeking I was able to get two groups of less than an inch at 100M, I will be OK with that having zeroed it in at 200M, It just goes to show that you really need to check the zero on a regular basis, and in fairness this was the first time I really zeroed in my new Z6, and Iam well pleased with it, now on to some Bucks!!!, bring in the next contestant!!

    I'd have thought he'd have been jumping from the roof tops saving 300-00, but it seems rather quite .
