    There is strong chance there will be a similar event run nationally if this is well attended - this could include East Anglia

    If these are anything like the best practice days ,that SNH use to set up everyone will leave with something worth while.

    In Scotland, we got theses for free ,just a pity it doesn't work the same in England £ 45.00 isn't a lot of money,on it's own but with everything else all nailed together it all adds up .

    On the other hand at least you'll have genuinely interested people turn up .

    £45 includes a copy of the Best Practice manual, which is worth I think £25.

    So for a days quality training it isn't a lot at all..


    Look at a days training in any industry - i'll bet there would be no change out of £200 / day, so in my opinion this is extremely good value considering the quality of the trainers:


    Norman Healy - expert in deer dogs, worked for years for FC as Ranger under John Cubby at Grizedale and gone on to higher things in the FC

    John Thornley - author of several legal related books for sportsman, works with BASC and advisor to the government for firearms law

    Andrew Dewhurst - very experienced and articulate ranger for the FC


    Excellent line up…..

    Andy I totally agree with the price, for the line up and the quality of day.
    £45.00 these day gets you one box of rounds.

    In Scotland 6 pointer has put another competence awareness day together which will involve many quality people .

    I've been to a couple of these days before and always come away with something new. Last time it was a newer / easier way of dealing with the bladder / back end in the field but Andrew D ended up cooked like a beetroot from standing in the sun all day!
    I'll be going this time for the risk assessment stuff, I'm getting asked more and more for them, that and a local incident where a young lad lost his life whilst out foxing I'm thinking it would be good to be able to do them and show that I can do them.

    Anyone else going, I'm not a fan of a room full of strangers.

    I won't be able to make it sadly but all of the guys I spoke to who went to the same at Grizedale said it was first class.
