Deer Management

IMG_0898 -2Deer Population
A helicopter count of the Mid-West was carried out in spring 2011. Photography was used to capture large groups of deer which could not be counted from the helicopter. This count provided an average deer density of 10.1 deer/sq km over the DMG’s area. The previous count in 2006 provided an average deer density of 11.6 deer/sq km.

The next full count is scheduled to take place during spring 2017.
