ZEISS Centre of Excellence - Deer, Game & Vermin Management (DGVM)

Deer, Game and Vermin Management (DGVM), run by Jim Riley, is the only ZEISS Centre of Excellence in the UK, based in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire.

"Having started life as a Gamekeeper I have always loved the countryside, and hunting has always been in my blood. However, it wasn’t until I started deer stalking that I realised where my true passion lied."

Who is Jim Riley and DGVM Ltd?

Deer, Game and Vermin Management are able to provide both accompanied and high-seat stalking for Red, Roe, Fallow, CWD and Muntjac Deer in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

At their bespoke classroom and larder facility, they are able to provide all forms of deer stalking training, from a basic introduction to firearms for the novice stalker through to DSC1 and DSC2 courses, with all DGVM guides being approved witnesses for the DSC2 scheme.

In addition, DGVM also runs both butchery courses and sausage and burger making courses, teaching the student how to professionally butcher a deer for the table and can even offer hunts in Europe for Wild boar and African Safaris.

"Having joined ZEISS several years ago as a pro stalker, I’m delighted to now also be running their centre of excellence in the UK. Providing customers with the chance to come and try ZEISS products on the rifle range before they buy, as well as being able to use them whilst stalking with us is a great way for customers to try out products first hand."

What is a ZEISS Centre of Excellence?

A ZEISS Centre of Excellence is a venue where customers are able to undertake a variety of activities. A Centre of Excellence has been equipped with the latest ZEISS sports optics products, including riflescopes and binoculars, ensuring clients are given a chance to try products before considering a purchase. For a nominal fee, customers can try various scopes on the 200 meter range and get a true feel for the products.

With most products held in stock, customers are encouraged to bring their own rifle with them to try out the products in your preferred environment. It is also possible to fit and zero customers new scopes whilst they are on site at the facility, ensuring you leave with your new scope ready to hunt with the following day!
