With a strong tradition of hunting in the family genes, David started hunting and shooting from the young age of six, accompanying his grandfather in the open plains and bush that are found in Southern Africa.
Having had the privilege and experience to hunt and observe most of African plains game in his formative years, on his return to the UK in 2001, David’s attention soon turned to the study, conservation and management of UK deer and their habitat, which he has passionately dedicated his time to ever since.
His role as Training Director for the Deer HUB involves planning, writing, presenting and overseeing the portfolio of excellent training courses and events delivered by the Deer HUB. David is also responsible for the ongoing assessment of our stalking clients and presenting our Competent Deer Stalker Awards to people when they have successfully completed a level.
