    Help with DSC2

    Hi hope some body can put me on the straight and narrow. I have just finished my first stalk with a witness on Islay and about to start the filling out the candidate narrative but after first doing on the PC and printing it out there is no way I can put it on one page, my question is can I just print it out and staple in into my portfolio?


    regards Ron

    Can you not change the text to a smaller one? However, remember that the assessor has got to read through your portfolio as well as the 3 narratives and is not paid much for doing it. Are you sure that everything you put onto the paper is absolutely necessary? The assessor needs to read about your successful stalk not the previous 2 hours of stalking through woods X, Y and Z and all the deer you spotted on route!
    Hope that helps a little?

    As above, they do not want your life story of the stalk! Phone up your assessor and ask them what they want in a narrative, their number is in the front of the book and the guidelines do say you SHOULD phone them before collecting evidence.

    Wrote mine in just under half a page.

    You can staple or use treasury tags to add your narratives. They need to be printed on a DMQ headed page which I can send you if you don't already have one. Please PM with email address if required.

    DMQ in their wisdom don't give an example ICR in the candidate paperwork, but there is one in the witness guidance notes freely available for all to download from the DMQ site.

    Aim for a similar length

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Thanks for that guys but the guy on the estate said that if I never went into great detail then it would be rejected

    Your own narrative should be to the point and correct. They do not want a long story, about the weather and the birds. Just the facts. If your AW told you that they needed a long story he is wrong.

    They provide one page for the narrative for a reason!

    Write up what your successful stalk consisted of in full, warts an all, but ensure you keep to the criteria of the L2, and try and keep it to one page type set 9 is about right, if it runs over, keep focused and keep it factual, the objective is to portray what occurred and how you completed the stalk. Then reduce it to be a true reference

    One I completed for myself, went to two pages because of the beast running on, causing additional paperwork, I kept at it and got it to a full page and was happy as a true write up after a multi trawl through it and reduction.
    (and missed a stupid spelling mistake) it happens 😃

    Does not really matter on length but a well planned outlay is always better than having to sift through a load of fluff clear concise and make sure you cover everything you went through with the AW on all the stalk from beginning to end.

    good luck
