Feral deer: How to set up camera traps

Trail cameras are one of the best tools we have at hand to understand local deer populations, their movements and control options. Local Land Services Biosecurity Officer specialist, Michael, takes you through best practice for setting up a camera trap to get the best results for protecting our native plants, animals, backyards and farmlands. 

You can help!

Report sightings of feral deer in your area through the Feral Scan App to help us manage feral deer and their impact on the environment. 

The Hastings Feral Deer Management Plan (2020-2024) provides a framework for local feral deer management in the Hasting area.

The plan has been prepared for all land managers and supports local implementation of the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015 by facilitating a coordinated approach to effective feral deer management in the Hastings area.
