Thread: How Many Stalkers Hold the Advanced Deer Management Qualification?

  1. #1

    How Many Stalkers Hold the Advanced Deer Management Qualification?

    It must be growing but to what current level? What % of stalkers hold the qualification?
    Courses are offered by the BDS (not seemingly by BASC) and by Jelen. Any other concerns offering these courses?

    Cheers, K

    Done it years ago. If I had the time I might do it again to see what's changed.

    I did the course with BDS in 2010, and the main instructor, Dave Goffin, in his preview of the course, advised our group that there were approx 800 registered with the registered bodies.... Which would be a very low % of all stalkers.... Not sure how many have been added in the last 3 years but it won`t be that many due to the low number of courses per year....

    That said, there will be more than that total already involved with deer management, who have the knowlwdge / experience, but do not feel the need to hold the certificate...

    All the best.
