Deer Management

Deer Counting

Foot counts are carried out by members annually in the spring. Helicopter counts have been carried out every three to four years with the assistance of SNH. Helicopter counts have given more accuracy to counting and allow plotting of populations on the DMG map.

Foot counting was carried out across the group in Spring 2018.

The latest helicopter count was carried out from 19th – 21st January 2015, with a small section carried out on 10th March 2015 as the population there is in closer proximity to the neighbouring Breadalbane DMG.
