Deer Management

The term Deer Management refers to the practice of controlling a population of deer on a given area of land, usually through culling, so that it meets the objectives of the landowner or land manager.

The objective of a deer management plan should be sympathetic to the requirements of the landowner or manager and therefore the management strategy may differ according to the required outcome.

Whilst objectives may differ, the usual purpose of a deer management plan, is to reduce the negative impact of deer damage, something that may involve the stripping of tree bark and browsing of plants, shrubs and crops that may have detrimental repercussions on the abundance of plant life, the wildlife populations or livestock that depend on them and/or the financial returns made from such.

Considerations when compiling a deer management plan might be as follow:

1. To reduce deer damage
2. To maximise returns from venison
3. To maximise sporting returns
4. To conserve a sustainable population

Effective deer management will usually require that the deer manager carry out a selective cull of deer to first achieve the desired number of animals on the ground, given the grounds reasonable carrying capacity.

The second objective is to then manage the population sustainably at a level where the deer can reach their optimum condition, without having a detrimental impact on the grounds carrying capacity.
