deer management

The Deer Management resource (and CD) was produced as a joint project between the NGO Educational Trust and the British Deer Society. This educational resource seeks to increase awareness and knowledge of the six deer species now found in the UK, their lifecycle, including predators, the problems associated with their population increase and the effect they have on the habitats they frequent.

This CD includes:

The ever expanding population has increased the need for more effective deer management. Deer population management should be carried out by trained stalkers. Approved training is provided by The British Deer Society and recognised College courses leading to professional qualifications.

One of the benefits of the increasing population is that venison is becoming more readily available. It is recognised that venison is a healthy, low cholesterol, organic meat.
