Become a Member

We welcome, as members, all who have interest in deer stalking and deer management, or anyone who would simply like to know more about deer.

Our members are only too willing to share their knowledge, interest and experience with new members. As a member of Ireland’s leading deer organisation you will benefit from a busy schedule of seminars and events on all aspects of deer management .

Events are generally free of charge and members receive regular updates on deer related news and legislative changes.  Every day new threats and opportunities arise for our wild deer and our association has been to the fore in working with government and stakeholders to ensure we can continue to have sustainable wild deer herds for future generations.
