NEWS

2024 Events

The South West England branch Committee are planning events for this year. We already have a few of the usual popular events in the pipeline; Butchery Sessions, Gralloch and Carcass Inspection days, Range Days, First Aid courses, Best Practice Days etc. 
 
We would like to invite you to let us know if there are any specific events that you would like us to arrange for you. These could be deer management related or activities with no relevance to management at all such as photography for example. 
 
Please let us know how we can best continue to serve your interests. If you have any suggestions please email southwestengland@bds.org.uk.

Thanks and best wishes,

Sharif Adams
Chairman, BDS South West England Branch
