Good evening and welcome to The British Deer Society

Great feedback from the 2018 Internet Auction

We were delighted to receive a note from a very happy gentleman called Paul from South Wales who won a couple of lots in our 2018 Internet Auction. He gave us some excellent feedback on the experience he had during 2 lots he had won:

“…just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the two auction lots that I secured in this year’s auction. The first was a day out with Rupert Shaw at Gledpark deer farm in Kirkcudbright ( and the second a day’s accompanied stalk courtesy of Jack Cosgrove near West Calder. 

Firstly our day with Rupert could not have been better, he is a superb ambassador for the BDS, he devoted a whole day to us and gave us a great insight into deer farming, we got up close to the deer and took some really good photographs.

The second lot involved stalking with one of Jack's friends, Jim, again he spent an entire day with us, firstly giving me some training with the rifle, and then taking both me and my wife out on our first real stalk. Jim has offered to take us out again next year, and again his enthusiasm and passion shone through,

These were two truly great experiences but the best part for me was meeting two people who were passionate about their involvement with deer and more than happy to engage with us two complete novices.”
