Meander Valley Councillors have discussed wild fallow deer management at a recent workshop.
The importance of management was at the heart of the discussion, mayor Wayne Johnston said.
"Council requested the attendance of key staff from Games Services Tasmania to discuss wild fallow deer in the Meander Valley area," he said.
Games Services are keen to work with the council and community groups for the management of fallow deer, and recognise the diversity of views that exist, the council said.
