After completing the Foundation Skills one day training last year (and thoroughly loved it), I decided to embark on the Intermediate courses and training offered by the Deer HUB. What an eye opener!! I was assigned Justin as my mentor (a veritable fount of knowledge) and was pleasantly surprised how quickly my skills developed with his structured approach. One year on, I’m proud to say that I now have my FAC, a rifle/gear and the basic skills to find, shoot, gralloch, butcher and prepare my own deer, much to the amazement of my family – thanks Deer HUB
