RIDGE Group was established in 1992 to research and develop the practice of Quality Deer Management and establish the deer population of Queensland as a sustainable resource.


The key objectives of the RIDGE Group are:

To research the impact that deer have on the environment and to develop and implement management strategies both solely and in conjunction with Government Departments or agencies and private organisations and individuals.


To identify the genetic path of Australia’s wild deer herds and develop and implement strategies to improve their potential and secure their future.


To promote the recreational, economic and historical value of deer.


To foster better relations between Government Departments, landowners and hunters.


To promote availability of hunting opportunities.


By purchasing RIDGE membership you are supporting the push for Sustainable management of our Wild Deer for the benefit of future generations of Australians.
