Deer Stalking Training

BASC is a founding member of Deer Management Qualifications (DMQ). A partnership of organisations concerned with servicing deer stalkers and involved in deer management and welfare, DMQ has agreed national standards to which deer stalkers may aspire. As such, DMQ operates as the awarding body for the Deer Stalking Certificate 1 and 2. The Deer Stalking Certificate may be obtained through registration at a number of DMQ assessment centres.

Some of the organisations currently participating in WDM include:

  • BASC.
  • Countryside Alliance.
  • Sparsholt College.
  • Forest Enterprise.
  • Deer Initiative.
  • Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.
  • The North Highland College.
  • British Deer Society.
  • Association of Deer Management Groups, Scotland.
