Deer Management Plan

Deer management is delivered through a formally adopted Deer Management Plan.  The Group has developed a new plan in conjunction with Scottish Natural Heritage that was formally adopted at the Group meeting on 6 May 2016.  The new plan is for the period April 2016 to March 2026.
