Wild Park & Farmed Deer Management

Wild Park & Farmed Deer management

Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus); Red deer (Cervus elaphus) and Muntjac (Muntiacus reevesii) have become a serious environmental problem over the last few years. The growth of deer populations will have a serious impact on the long-term profitability of commercial forestry, especially as many of these forests come into second and third rotations. A major factor in allowing this to come about is the continuing mismanagement of deer herds specifically with respect to Lack of knowledge of the species & its behavioural patterns and the overwhelming desire for financial gain through exploitation of deer whilst ignoring the likely reactions of the local deer population and the resulting impact on the long-term economic future of woodlands or agricultural crops.

PDMS will help you gain this level of management by developing your skills to achieve a marriage of the professional expertise of both Deer Manager and Forester. Successful deer management is closely inter-related with forest management.

The above principles apply equally to park herds and the need to balance the size of the herds with the natural environment in which they live. At PDMS we will address the specific needs of these herds.
