Intermediate deer course
The Intermediate Deer Course is designed as a step between DSC1 and DSC2 and the aim is to advance and prepare students wishing to undertake the DSC2, and any novice stalker wishing to further their practical experience.
The two-day course will equip the candidate with the support, understanding and awareness required for the safe and correct way of shooting deer, retrieving, gralloching, carcass inspection and lardering.
It allows everyone to be supervised on their first kill and provides practical experience in preparing the carcass for human consumption.
What is covered
Stalking the deer or shooting from a high seat
Taking the shot and reaction to shot
Approaching the deer/follow up
Extracting and transporting the carcass
Gralloching and inspection of the carcass
