With more than 140 lots on offer to suit every budget, bidders are completely spoilt for choice.

Many of the generous donors have offered money-can’t-buy lots not usually available to the public, including private deerstalking, shooting and fishing, personalized sporting goods, luxury holiday lets and exclusive dining experiences.

Hosted by EBay for Charity, bidding starts early evening on Friday 17th May with individual lots starting and finishing at different times and days – so if you aren’t lucky with your first lot you can try for another!

The BDS’ Chairman, Mark Nicolson said the annual auction is an important fundraiser for the charity.

“We have been pulling out all the stops and our bighearted supporters have come up with some truly fantastic auction lots this year.”

“Of particular note are a day’s red stalking on the breathtaking Auchlyne Estate, private wildlife photography tuition with George Trebinski and a signed print of a garron carrying a red stag painted by Clare Brownlow using a pheasant feather.

“All proceeds from the auction will go towards the BDS’ vital education and research projects.”

The auction catalogue is available within the spring issue of Deer Journal, or can be downloaded via the website www.bds.org.uk
