    Are you confident that from your experience you have built up you can demonstrate the theory detailed in the DSC1 manual in practice and answer any questions that might crop up along the way? If so then don't worry and enjoy the stalk. If you have any doubts then talk it over with an AW before hand. Going on a pre DSC2 assessment stalk with an AW can also save a lot of hassle and worth considering.

    Hope the answer is yes! Will try and enjoy.

    Go back through your DSC 1 manual and brush up on relevant theory.
    Have a look at the Best Practise guidelines online.
    http://www.thedeerinitiative.co.uk/best_practice/
    Pay particular attention to Lymph gland sites and know what looks normal/abnormal. Know what to do if you find abnormalities and who to call (have the number in your mobile!)
    Go onto DMQ website here. As well as the candidate guide, have a good look at the Witness Guide which will give you an idea of what the AW is after and also the sort of questions they may ask.
    http://www.dmq.org.uk/download.htm
    Consider what you would do if you wounded an animal. Even if you shoot all 3 animals well, you will be questioned on this as well as actions on abnormalities. Sort all your kit out so it is spot on - including your vehicle. Carcass tray with blood soak fitted.
    Consider what you will do with the carcass - gralloch site (preferably suspended), transport, storage (temperature/protection), cull records/tags/data?
    PM me if you get stuck or fancy a chat.
    Proper Job!
