    If they helped write it why do they say that "Best Practice" does not apply on the Isle of Wight?

    Dave, there is a cost for the training - the courses are kept at minimal cost as possible. The price has yet to be set I understand and is subject how popular each day is / cost of lecturers etc.

    I think last year the BP days ranged from 30 to 60 for each day.


    Tim, Best Practice should apply everywhere,,,

    Some of tbe DI courses i have been are free others i have paid for . Some are run under the partnership of the DI . BDS .BASC .. NGO . The courses are well run . Most stalkers learn something on these courses and there well worth the money.
    If its hit its history / If its missed its a mystery

    In the current financial climate it is prudent to keep costs low if you want to encourage people to events that would help boost your own aims. SNH normally have free events and still have problems getting people to attend. Tim in what way do FC not apply best practice on the isle of white.
    If you read the post I put up you will see that FC Scotland are not only supporting best practice they are leading on the NFE.

    I agree entirely, the Deer Initiative Accord clearly states that it applies to England and Wales and unlike the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man which are separate states with their own parliaments the Isle of Wight is a full English County.

    Nevertheless Mr Simon Hodgson, CEO of Forest Enterprise has informed me by letter that "Best Practice" does not apply to the Isle of Wight.

    Incidentally, anyone who would like to learn more about the history and current status of wild deer on the island, please visit the wordpress site that I have set up to help inform the public about our local deer. http://timbrayford.wordpress.com/
