Good evening and welcome to The British Deer Society

Deer journal & Digital Deer

Deer journal & Digital Deer

'Deer' is the house journal of the British Deer Society and includes news on all that is happening in the world of deer, as well as features, product reviews and scientific articles.

It also contains membership information and offers, and news from BDS branches. Produced by Perdix Publishing on behalf of BDS it is published quarterly in October, January, April and July, and mailed direct to all BDS members.


BDS membership represents a large percentage of all the deer stalkers and managers in the UK. The magazine is mailed directly to our 6,000 members and read by more than 12,400 individuals including those involved with deer on both a professional and recreational basis.

Introducing 'Digital Deer' 

You can now get a flavour of the Deer journal online with the launch of Digital Deer, a web based magazine accessed via PC, laptop or smartphone. The flip-HTML publication will have quarterly updates to match with Deer journal and besides current news and articles will feature interesting material from past Deer journal issues.

Digital Deer provides a snapshot of the Deer journal aimed at stimulating interest in deer, their ecology and management amongst a much wider public audience. However, for the exclusive benefit of BDS members, the latest detailed research and technical features will still only be published in the full printed Deer journal.
