DMQ launching wild boar qualification early autumn 2019

In recognition of the increase of feral wild boar in the UK and the need for their management Deer Management Qualifications (DMQ) will be launching a wild boar qualification in early autumn 2019.

The assessment standards of the qualification recognise the need for wild boar to be managed effectively and humanely in the interests of both their welfare and our natural habitat.

The DMQ chairman, John Thornley, said, ‘With no current legislation specifically relating to the management of wild boar and the popularity of boar hunting both at home and abroad DMQ considers this qualification to be a further example of enhancing the principles of self-regulation which has been so successful through the existing deer stalking qualification system’.

Further information on the qualification will be available shortly.
