Deer Management

The BASC Game and Deer team promotes sustainable deer management across the UK by providing advice to members on habitat and species management,  developing and supporting best practice, offering deer stalking opportunities and influencing government policy in order to protect shooting.   That’s why you should join BASC today.

For specific advice on deer and deer stalking matters please contact The Game and Deer Department on 01244573019 or email

  • Gain access to stalking though the BASC stalking schemes
  • Give guidance and advice on stalking leases and agreements
  • Give further help and guidance on best practice in stalking

BASC takes a lead role as a representative body for both professional and recreational deer stalkers and managers. We contribute to the formulation of government policy, ensuring that all decision makers are aware that the most effective and humane method of managing deer is culling by shooting. In this respect deer stalkers represent a major resource for the effective management of deer, including the control of deer damage to farming, forestry and nature conservation interests.
