The DSC1 is the foundation of deer skills development.
To be awarded the DSC1 certificate you must demonstrate knowledge and skills to successfully pass formal assessments in the following areas:
General Knowledge of the 6 species of deer found in Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Large Game Trained Hunter – knowledge of the inspection of carcasses and the legal requirements
Rifles: A rifle legal for shooting deer in the UK is required for the shooting assessment. Any candidate who wishes to borrow a BDS Club rifle may legally borrow one free of charge under the BDS Gun Club rules. To be eligible to borrow a rifle you must be a member of the BDS and will be asked to complete a Section 21 Declaration Form, unless a valid FAC is held.
FAC holders must have their certificates with them so they are able to sign the range register and therefore be able to comply with society rules and regulations.
