Abstract
The Forest - Hunting Dialog in Austria was founded in 2012 with the idea to improve the interaction between hunters and forester so that the browsing and bark peeling impacts due to too high deer populations are reduced. Three working groups work on different aspects in preventing deer damage. Working group 1 deals with legal implications, Working group 2 addresses monitoring problems and strategies to enhance the documentation of the different deer damage counting systems, Working group 3 is related to public relation activities and public perception to enhance the public awareness of deer damage within Austrian forests.
