A practical guide to managing deer to their potential.


With 25 years of professional deer management experience, the author shows how to manage deer to their best potential. Whilst much deer management can result in a harassed and pressured deer population, this invaluable guide demonstrates how a more gentle approach has the benefit of an unstressed, visible and truly manageable population of deer. The book concentrates mainly on roe and includes detailed case studies, including: a modern approach to cull planning, collaborative management techniques, plus 10 delicious venison recipes from 3-star Michelin chef, Marco Pierre White.


Dominic Griffith, known as a massive roe enthusiast, set up his own Deer Management business in 1986 and is responsible for managing the deer on 15,000 acres in Hampshire. He is a Board Director (Trustee) of both the British Deer Society and the Deer Initiative and also heads the BASC Trophy Measuring Service. He has a wide and continuing involvement in training at all levels and in particular their management as measured by quality. Dominic Griffith, runner-up for the Sporting Rifle's Stalking Book of the Year award, which was announced at Bisley Live Gun & Country Sports Show in October 2011.
