7 JULY - 2018
Land Assessment Training
Investing time in assessing land before you stalk deer is essential. Knowing your boundaries, safe places to shoot, where to place high seats, what species are present and an idea of the deer population, is all part of the groundwork a stalker needs to do before setting out on a stalk.
It is also a requirement of police licensing that a stalker is familiar with the ground they intend to stalk and that it is safe to use a centre fire rifle. Land is not intrinsically “safe” or “unsafe” and any hunter needs to exercise a strong measure of discretion in deciding whether or not to shoot in any given situation. Knowing your land is therefore of utmost important.
For club members who have access to their own grounds, or for those on the PLUS scheme this is an invaluable insight into assessing land.
The day will start at 10am at our Crawley estate with a briefing from James Mott, before members set out in pairs to survey an area of land completete with land and ordinance survey maps. There will be refreshments provided and we plan to end at around 12:30/1pm.
