HWPC deer management, culling & fencing services, we manage deer populations at private estates and farms throughout the south of England. We also remove rogue deers premises and can advise you on deer proofing your land from further incursions.
Why Is Deer Management Needed?
With the deer population growing rapidly across the United Kingdom, with no natural predators, deer management is needed in order to protect crops, the forestry and the conservation of existing habitats of other species.
Deer Management Plan (DMP)
A deer management plan (DMP) is formed following a site visit and instruction with regard to the land owner’s wishes. This deer management plan is based on criteria of
- The results from a land audit
- Identifying population reduction limits or specific deers
- Agreeing on objectives & initiating the cull
- Monitoring the results on the land or deer population
- Annual reassessment
Deer Stalking & Population Control
To avoid environmental damage, overpopulation or disease, landowners and estate managers are required to manage deer numbers correctly and engage deer stalkers to set some control on the deer population.
Controlling the deer population improves habitats, and biodiversity increases crop yields and protects other investments. It also has the benefit of reducing accidents on the roads.
