The Deer Stalking Certificate Level 2 is the chance for a deer stalker with sufficient experience to prove that they can meet a set standard in all aspects of their practice. The assessment starts at the preparation stage and the candidate will either have to demonstrate practically, and also by questioning, that they are safe, sufficiently knowledgeable and competent at all stages when taking a deer from field to larder.
With a BASC Assessor leading the team we can offer the reasurance of our intimate knowledge of the assessment process and a more simple and direct method of assessment without the need to find an ‘Approved Witness’.
Deer Central can facilitate Level 2 assessments either ourselves or we can come to you on ground where you have lawful authority to shoot deer.
The Performance Criteria come under 4 Categories or ‘Elements’,
- Element 1 – Covers Planning and Preparation up to and including the stalk and selection of deer.
- Element 2 – Covers the Shot, Follow up and initial Gralloch
- Element 3 – Covers the detail of the Gralloch and Inspection.
- Element 4 – Covers the extraction, lardering, storage and record keeping
