Thread: BDS Deer Manager course

    BDS Deer Manager course

    I notice the new dates are out for the BDS deer manager course and it suddenly seems like it is only a 3 day course for £320 now!

    Who says competition is a bad thing

    Did it last year, it must have been compacted quite a bit. They could take out the advanced shooting test, that's a half day, and there was an estate tour another half day but I don't know where the other day will come from

    The shorter time & lower cost will make it more easily done for many who need to use leave/holidays & those on a budget, I welcome this but think the reading list could be published cheaper to ease entry further.

    Well well well what a surprise !! Where have all the sabre rattlers gone ?. you cant possibly do a ADM course in three days they all shouted. The content is to much you will never fit it all into three days."Well" sorry guys apparently you can. As we proved on our last course and will continue to prove just goes to show some of these courses have got more padding than a artic sleeping bag you must have a custom rifle ? you must have a mountain hound ? I wonder if all the people who have done the five day course are going to feel a bit cheated after forking out a small fortune on hotels,food ect Just goes to show Three day ADM's are the way forward.

    A lot of people go on about the RSPCA on here being crooks.
    I often think that the BDS are not far behind
    It seems to be about money and perceived value and then just set a rate at which you think people can just about suffer
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
