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.
