Head Deer Manager
We respect that every estate is different, that estate management teams have various objectives to achieve in deer management.
Fallow Deer are becoming an increasing issue; difficult to control due to their ability to cover large areas, grouping together in the winter which causes intensive damage in specific areas.
recreational stalkers have limited impact in controlling the species and and often misunderstand the management of them. A prolonged buck season enable many males to be harvested, however does often get overlooked. the result is much larger groups, and poor genetics; something we know how to redress.
Muntjac can be easily managed and Roe need managing very carefully.
We can tailor our management practices, putting together a full land and deer survey, cull plan and data collection in place.
