Chris took up his position earlier this month and will be working within the expanded Deer Management Department.

Coming from a background of agricultural engineering, Chris has been a deer management advisor for the Deer Initiative, is a keen stalker, and has been shooting for 25 years.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the work I did with the Deer Initiative, so this job is a fantastic opportunity for me. BASC already runs three great stalking schemes in Thirlmere, Thetford and on Arran and I am really looking forward to developing and adding to those schemes and other deer related services for members,” said Chris.
