Deer Management Update

12th December 2019

ADMG heartened that progress is recognised in SNH deer management report

Scotland’s upland deer sector is  subject to review every three years by Scottish Natural Heritage.  These reviews are based on Deer Management Group (DMG) assessments against some 101 criteria.

In response to the latest SNH report ADMG Chairman, Richard Cooke says:-

“We are pleased to note that the SNH 2019 report Assessing Progress in Deer Management clearly recognises significant progress made by the Deer Management Groups (DMGs) since the 2016 review.  For example, 87% of groups have scored more than 90% in the Benchmark element of the SNH assessment of DMGs, up from 36% in 2016.’

Furthermore,  the SNH report recognises that, overall, red deer densities are now below 10/sq km and continue to decline due to culling at higher levels than in the past.  Around 22% of the red deer population is culled annually.
