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 course is designed to equip the candidate with the support, understanding and awareness required for the safe and correct way of shooting deer, retrieving, gralloching, carcase inspection and lardering. It allows everyone to be supervised on their first kill and provides practical experience in preparing the carcase for human consumption.
On completion of this course the candidate will be issued with the BASC Intermediate Deer Course certificate (subject to passing the assessment).
The BASC Intermediate Deer Course comprises of:-
- 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 carcase.
- Gralloching and inspection of the carcase.
