We have an arrangement with Monmouth and District Rifle Club to use their range at Monmouth on the fourth Sunday of the month, except December, from 10 am to 4 pm.
Contact West Branch Secretary to arrange attendance, get directions and basic range orders.

We shall continue to remind members that newsletters require news content and that really needs to come from you. We are happy to receive news in any form you like, no matter how rough, and will willingly craft it into literary masterpieces for general branch edification. So share your (deer-related) experiences with your fellow BDS members via this organ!

Newsletter distribution

All newsletters will in future be also put on the BDS website  You will find the newsletter on the Branches page under ‘West’.  We will also put dates of activities and events into ‘Deer’.

Please, if you have not already done so, agree to receive your newsletter by Email. Not only is this a quicker and easier distribution method but it saves a lot of Branch funds (in postage) and committee members’ time. E-mail addresses to
