Bulletin
P.R. Ratcliffe
1987
This Bulletin is primarily concerned with the management of resident populations of red deer in commercial forests, and gives practical prescriptions for deer management based upon sound data collection and scientific method. All such prescriptions must be aimed at particular, well-defined deer populations occupying discrete ranges. There is an important emphasis throughout upon predictive management, rather than a retrospective ‘shutting the stable door’ response to unacceptable conditions. The assessment of population size and birth and death rates is explained together with their use as a basis for setting cull levels.
