    Ha, when I did level one quite a few years ago, there was an alarming number of folk on the course that identified a CWD doe as being a red hind........so many in fact, the assessors even went back and checked the picture to check it was right! Personally I couldn't for the life of me work out how they'd made such a balls up, to think, those folk are probably out there now wondering the countryside with rifles (or possibly reading this...... You know who you are)
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Ha ha probably can't see the tusks as I m on an iPad and it's small cant think how you could mix up the cwd and a red though .ive put the dsc off for a very long time but I'm pleasantly Suprised with my knowledge and that I've learnt a thing or two as well so I've been a sceptic but I'm trying to be realistic too so I'm doing a bit of school work each evening for 15'mins

    The online cd from Bds gives a quiz on deer ID that nearly matches the test Best bet if your not sure get out to see them in the flesh, you will learn a lot more in the field on id if you have a starchy area on id sort it out before you enrol, it's worth the effort make the actual course as easy as possible. There's plenty of other stuff to do. Get familiar with it and it will spring straight up on test time

    good luck

    Yep not set a date yet for a test but enrolled on a online course which suits me well ,I ruptured my hamstring yesterday so that may curtail my shooting test (kneeling ) part for a while anyway .I maybe restricted to high seat work for a bit too can't see me doing too much walk stalking I certainly won't be quick anyways

    forget the tusks look for a black diamond for a doe and Black lines (V)that go up only to the antlers buck
