IMG_0898 -2Deer Population
A helicopter count of the Mid-West was carried out in spring 2017. 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 11 deer/sq km over the DMG’s area. The previous count in 2014 provided an average deer density of 10.1 deer/sq km.

The next full count is scheduled to take place during spring 2020.
