    For anyone interested in preparing their own deer trophies, hides and other items I am now able to offer a half day course in trophy prep and a full day course in both together. This obviously requires a lot of a "here's one I prepared earlier" type of scenarios but I have enough hides and heads available to enable students to completely prepare and mount a head and a hide in one day. Obviously you wont have the hide you started with at the beginning at the end but I can ensure that if you bring one of your own it will be returned to you completely tanned.
    I'm thinking about £150 per person per course, cost of chemicals included as is lunch.
  2. Can I user Maddy Mcanns head? I still have it lying around somewhere :)

    Naughty man, I'm going to make sure you have a heavy rifle to carry!
  6. I have unfortunately, a mother in law who needs her head removed and mounted on the radiator of my car, do i get a discount on sympathy grounds, or do i need evidence from a Priest or Magistrate.


  7. Ugly, we as soldiers, can do the DSC1 course and claim it back on learning credits - can we do the same with the one you're offering?

    I have given receipts to a lad I used to serve with for a course in deer and estate management we ran about 2 years ago. We ran it for his resettlement as he had the courses he wanted already and still had a decent budget left.
    That I can do, proper recepits etc arent a problem.
  10. Barret Light .50?? :)
