The competition will mirror the course of fire that will take place at the Scottish Inter-Branch Competition later in August at Jubilee Range, Glentilt.

Use of sticks, shooting off elbows (with sling) and prone will be tested. The target will be a scoring insert on the DMQ black deer.

BDS Response to the Defra Consultation on Proposed Deer Management Strategy

The British Deer Society (BDS) has reviewed in detail the consultation on proposed deer management published by Defra on the 4th of August 2022. Whilst we welcome the consultation in general terms, and in particular the intent to develop a wider market for venison, we have serious concerns about some of the proposals.
