Community feral deer management (CFDM) is defined as “active engagement of the community in managing local feral deer impacts”. It can include activities such as reporting feral deer sightings, vegetation monitoring, public education days or removal and/or non-removal management such as erecting an exclusion fence. See right.
CFDM can significantly reduce the impacts of feral deer.
A community can consistently manage feral deer on private property, which is required to impact population numbers and to ensure results from large operations are maintained.
Communities can provide invaluable data on feral deer spread by reporting sightings and control effort.
