Good morning and welcome to The British Deer Society

BDS at the CLA

There was plenty of BDS activity last weekend at the CLA Game Fair at Harewood House where periodic rain was interspersed with glorious sunshine over the three days.

 Undeterred by the heavy showers the show was well attended with many visitors beating a path to the BDS. In addition to displaying BDS membership, sales and training initiatives, on Friday the BDS Skills Award was launched, Norman Ball of North East England Branch was presented with the Jim Taylor Page Trophy and Charles Smith Jones signed copies of his book The Deerstalker's Bedside Book. The British Deer Farms and Parks Association had a spectacular display of antlers and wildlife artist Nigel Artingstall showcased a collection of his watercolours and prints.
