Big news for all Team Wild TV fans and BASC Members! If you want to find out more about stalking, hunting and being a good outdoorsman this scheme could be just what you are looking for.
As a first of it’s kind in Northern Ireland, a new deer stalking scheme has been set up for members of the UK’s largest shooting organisation, the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC). The scheme offers high quality accompanied, foot and high-seat stalking over 10,000 acres of the well-known Baronscourt Estate in County Tyrone. Designed to provide practical, follow on experience for BASC members who have successfully completed their Deer Stalking (DSC) Level 1, the scheme gives the opportunity to complete their DSC level 2 portfolio using the estates accredited witnesses.
Running from the 1st November 2014 to 28th February 2015 this year, the scheme is then expected to open on the 1st August 2015 and continue through to the end of February thereafter. As well as enables BASC members to gain practical experience and further their deer stalking certificate levels, the scheme will also help the Estate manage its wild population of Sika deer.
As outdoors men we all have a duty to take care to the game, to help manage numbers and to be ethical hunters. Schemes such as this are designed to help those wanting to be more involved in the outdoors and help understand how they can be a better hunter and further their deerstalking certifications.
