Matching deer stalking trainees and mentors

Recommended Posts

In January BASC launched a register of competent deer stalkers. This is primarily to provide landowners a list of stalkers in their area that they can approach when they are looking to find someone to manage deer on their property. We have more than 700 stalkers on this register, the majority of whom have DSC2. Additionally, as part of the registering process, they were asked if they would be willing to mentor a new deer stalker, and the majority said yes.

BASC also runs DSC1 courses across the UK, training around 700 people a year. Many of those that complete the DSC1 have not shot a deer nor have access to deer stalking but have already shown a serious commitment to developing themselves – ideal trainees. All we need to do is link those who have achieved their DSC1 with people on the register. If you are a DSC1 holder, then just email deer@basc.org.uk asking to be put in touch with suitable mentors in your area.

If you are an experienced deer stalker willing to act as a mentor, then add your name to our register.
