We have our usual November meeting "Talking Stalking" on November 3rd at Spean Bridge Community Hall, where we will hear from Jahama Estates (used to be Rio Tinto Alcan) about their management of the large tract of land on Killiechonate, Mamore and Glen Shero that they own. Also, we will talk about boar/feral pigs before going out to try and find some signs - they are all through the woods at the back of Spean Bridge.
On November 16th we are also running a day at Gordonbush, Rogart, for our growing group Hind Sight. This is exclusively for women with an interest in hunting/stalking and deer management.
The shooting team performed well at the Inter-Branch shoot, coming second.
Our spring meet will be held at Achnacarry, probably in early April.
Training & Stalker Development
We are keen to encourage new member stalkers & to nurture their progress to encourage best practice. The branch has some generous members who will mentor beginners.
Please contact our Chairman Alistair Monkman who can facilitate this. email@example.com
Additionally, there are opportunities for Stalking at Altyre for BDS members.
BDS and Altyre Estate are pleased to announce the launch of preferential rates for BDS members who wish to stalk Scottish woodland roe deer at Altyre Estate in Moray. Primarily aimed at those wishing to undertake DSC2 training and/or assessment, the estate can offer accompanied stalks for cull roebucks and does with the estate stalker (Approved Witness) at a flat rate of £85 inc VAT per outing.
We do not send the newsletters by post anymore. It is too costly and some members must be missing out, so please send your email address to HQ or Ian the secretary.
