The Victorian Deer Control Community Network (VDCCN) was established in 2021 by people concerned that there was little co-ordination or sharing information on feral deer control activity. The VDCCN now provides a platform for state-wide collaboration of all groups and individuals over matters related to reducing the impact of feral deer.
The impact of feral deer provides economic, environmental and social challenges right across the community, whether you are a large landowner neighbouring forested public land, a landcare group restoring land or have a garden on a peri-urban area.
To assist landowners to manage deer on their land, the Victorian Deer Control Community Network (VDCCN) has developed this kit as a guide to provide the community with more information about feral deer and control options for a range of property types.
The Victorian Deer Control Community Network (VDCCN) provides a state-wide forum to share information, experiences and collectively seek solutions to substantially reduce the impact and distribution of feral deer in Victoria.
We acknowledge the First Australians and their elders past and present. Effective threat abatement in Australia will need to harness the deep knowledge and land and sea management skills of Indigenous Australians, and facilitate their meaningful involvement in decision-making.
The Victorian Deer Control Community Network (VDCCN) is a network of organisations and individuals that are interested in reducing the impact of feral deer on Victoria’s landscape
