Community Integrated Deer Management in Scotland
The vision is being brought forward by a partnership of eleven leading deer management stakeholders:
The Association of Deer Management Groups (ADMG), BASC, the British Deer Society (BDS), Deer Management Qualifications (DMQ), the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT), Lowland Deer Network Scotland (LDNS), the Scottish Association for Country Sports (SACS), the Scottish Countryside Alliance (SCA), the Scottish Country Sports Tourism Group (SCSTG), Scottish Land and Estates (SLE) and the Scottish Venison Association (SVA).
The partnership aims to institutionalise what is being described as ‘community integrated deer management’. This involves establishing more opportunities for trained recreational deer stalkers to manage deer on public land in their local area.
A bold new community integrated approach to deer management in Scotland will offer more opportunities for trained recreational stalkers.
