Deer Management Group boundaries

Last update: 2019-07-01


Voluntary Deer Management Groups (DMGs) exist across most of Scotland’s red deer range. The memberships of these groups comprise representatives from landholdings within the group’s area. The diversity of ownership and management objectives within this membership is increasingly varied, and as a result positive, proactive engagement from all landholdings within the group area is important to the effective, sustainable management of deer populations.

The Association of Deer Management Groups works closely with Scottish Natural Heritage to support DMGs to deliver effective deer management planning and decision making.
