Good evening and welcome to The British Deer Society

about our training

learn more about our training

The British Deer Society remains at the forefront of training initiatives and course development and delivery throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Our range of nationally-recognised training courses in effective management of deer and their habitats help to improve the skills and expertise of practising deer managers controlling populations and their impacts; enabling them to ensure responsible and sustainable management of deer populations and their environment.

Our courses, training manuals, educational DVDs and booklets have been produced by experts in their field contributing accrued knowledge from a lifetime of practical and academic experience.  All have deer sustainability at heart to ensure that deer culling is conducted safely, legally and above all, as humanely as possible.

The pages in this training section detail the extensive range of courses, awards, and initiatives the Society can offer to fulfill the aims of the Society and hopefully all those engaged in controlling deer.
