GAINING EXPERIENCE FOR DSC2
Since you will be expected to demonstrate the whole process of culling a deer on at least 3 separate occasions DMQ strongly recommends that candidates obtain some experience under the guidance of a competent individual before attempting DSC2. Candidates are also advised to consult the Best Practice Guides issued for England and Wales or the Best Practice Guidance issued for Scotland, depending on where you live or stalk.
It is highly unlikely that you could satisfy the requirements of DSC2 unless you had completed the whole process a number of times before having your stalking and culling witnessed. Since some witnesses may charge for their services (any such charges are not levied by, or paid to DMQ) you could waste money by being unprepared.
See Assessment for details of what you will be expected to do.
