special interest group: DDM
Defence Deer Management (DDM) is a voluntary organisation of serving military, MOD civil servants and, where necessary, retired personnel who provide a deer management service on behalf of the MOD.
DDM is a Special Interest Group, rather than a regional branch, of the Society.
Information has recently been shared relating to changes to DSC1 and DSC2 made by Deer Management Qualifications (DMQ).. These changes come into effect on April the 1st.
Due to the planned relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, the BDS will from March the 8th be resuming delivery of DSC1 and Deer Management Courses. Find out more.
