What DeerScan provides

DeerScan is a free resource that anyone can use to record deer sighting, problems or control activities. It has been designed by landholders for landholders, and it is very easy to use. You can record information using the DeerScan website or by using the App. DeerScan can help to notify local biosecurity groups or your landholder / community via alerts, and information you enter will be kept private and secure. The App can be used to record information even without mobile reception.
