Live Animal Capture

The most professional deer control
and husbandry services

Since 1981 Jelen Premier Wildlife Services has quietly led the way in wildlife management solutions. Deer populations generally are out of control in the UK, so it makes sense to NOT follow strategies and working practices that have shown to be ineffective.  In many cases, the approach needs to change if you wish to regain control of deer numbers on your farm, forest or estate.

Why are we different? 

  • We do not do sport or trophy hunting.
  • We believe your commercial and conservation goals must have primacy.
  • We work with leading conservationists and ecologists to ensure that we deliver sustainable solutions.
  • We will work with you in true partnership.

Conservation Grade Deer Control

Deer control that gets the job done.  

Not for sport, or for fun.  

Deer reduction to an agreed plan so you can re-claim your forestry, crops and woodland.


▪ We will review your situation and advise.

This is ideal for those wishing to reduce negative impact on agricultural crops and forestry, and increase farm and estate incomes.  Jelen PWS will provide you with a blueprint to work to and will result in you being able to regain control of deer numbers and begin reducing losses through deer damage. We will provide a written plan for your gamekeeper or stalker to follow, delivering efficient deer control and management strategies with guidance and support from us.


▪ We manage the deer on your land. We will own the project, get the results you want, leaving you free to concentrate on what you do best.
