Attend a full DSC1 course with the British Deer Society (BDS) before 30 September 2013 and candidates will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win a brand new Savage Axis rifle and Weaver Kaspa 3-12×50 scope!
The three-day course, which is run from numerous locations throughout the year, consists of two days classroom instruction on the ecology of Britain’s six deer species and all the necessary technical knowledge to stalk deer unsupervised.
The final day sees candidates take part in a shooting assessment and tested on field safety.
Don’t have your own rifle?
The BDS can lend you a .243 Savage Axis for the shooting test and provide Hornady ammunition free of charge, thanks to a unique partnership with Edgar Brothers.
Successful candidates gain a DSC1 Certificate including the Large Game Handling Qualification.
The DSC1 course costs £275, which includes all assessment fees, DMQ registration, and a comprehensive 284-page manual.
