BASC has tutored a visiting team from Japan’s Rakuno Gauken university on deer management standards.
There are large numbers of deer on Japan’s Hokkaido island, leading to an increasing uptake of hunting in the area. BASC’s Nick Lane said: “I am delighted to have provided an insight into BASC’s deer management. BASC plays a lead role in setting high standards.” A Rakuno Gauken spokesperson added: “We have a problem on Hokkaido Island with an overabundance of sika deer. By visiting BASC we hope to learn and improve on our natural resources.”
