  • Gain access to stalking though the BASC stalking schemes
  • Give guidance and advice on stalking leases and agreements
  • Give further help and guidance on best practice in stalking

BASC takes a lead role as a representative body for both professional and recreational deer stalkers and managers. We contribute to the formulation of government policy, ensuring that all decision makers are aware that the most effective and humane method of managing deer is culling by shooting. In this respect deer stalkers represent a major resource for the effective management of deer, including the control of deer damage to farming, forestry and nature conservation interests.
