In addition, during the process of developing this Deer Management Plan, a case emerged for extending the area to both peripheral areas around the current group, and also to the other side of the River Tay and A9. This would be quite an extensive exercise, and is outwith the remit of this plan, but the potential for extending the South Perthshire DMG area is noted on this map below:

Appendix 7 SP DMG Population Model

The population model above reflects what we think has been happening since 2010. However, the consensus is that the population is probably a lot more stable than this. Group members will continue with their current cull levels until 2018 when a more comprehensive deer count can be implemented.
