    Fcs ( summary of key commitments )

    We will manage the NFE as a multi-benefit resource to deliver a range of environmental, social and economic benefits in a diversity of situations.
    We will manage deer at densities which will allow the sustainable management of a diverse, productive and resilient NFE which produces quality timber, vibrant ecosystems, attractive landscapes and quality venison.
    We will manage deer in a way that contributes to the rural economy as far as this is compatible with our other management principles.
    We will value deer as an iconic asset and keystone species.
    We will use the NFE as an exemplar of best practice for deer management.
    We will place health and safety and deer welfare at the heart of our deer management activities.
    We will work closely with neighbours and relevant organisations to promote sustainable deer management through an ongoing process of collaboration seeking to recognise and understand the interests of all parties.
    We will support the work of SNH and the deer initiatives. We will use a combination of deer culling and deer fencing to manage deer impacts and densities to acceptable levels.
    We will carry out deer culling operations using Wildlife Rangers, Deer Management Contractors,
    Leases (being phased out), Permissions and Accompanied Stalking to achieve the best balance of effectiveness and efficiency.
    We will apply FC Operational Guidance and industry best practice.
    We will use authorised and responsible out of season and night shooting to help manage negative deer impacts given that the NFE is vulnerable to these impacts throughout the year.
    We will review our monitoring, survey, assessment and decision-making processes to improve the predictive quality and focus of our deer management activities.
    We will align our deer management practices to ‘Scotland’s Deer a National Approach’ and the ‘Code of Practice on Deer Management’. FES Deer Management Strategy 2017-20
    Elements of the feedback from the 2013 consultation and ongoing experience will be taken into account in our development of a deer management strategy for the NFE for the period 2017-20. This will include the identification of challenges and management directions, measures and options that FES and its partners might adopt in future in their efforts towards sustainable deer management and responsible land management, including the management of open ground.

    If FCS has anything to do with deer management I would suggest its not in the interest of deer or applying industry best practice if its the same as FCE. The local managers have too much say in what goes on by applying targets to stalkers in their employment/contract reviews and in consequence this does not provide an integrated approach.
    Deer densities are usually as low as they can get away with and if there is a need for night shooting its because the FCS are managing trees not deer.
    How's your end of the gene pool today?

    Fc whether S or E are duplicitous in their management critetia.
    It's letting the lunatics run the asylum.
    Scottish and English deer need a body between those interested in trees and the bambi brigade with legislative teeth to better provide an integrated forestry/deer management system.
    Below is a link to my website.

    Woods managed for high deer populations / sport = poor stocking/timber, little natural regen and biodiversity loss
    Woods managed for timber / conservation = few deer and grumpy stalkers
    twas ever thus

    Very little differs from lease to permission.

    I would hope so in principal but there's a big difference in what lease and permission might actually mean!
