Roff, C. (1960) Deer in Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 17 (1). pp. 43-58.



Fallow deer, Cervus dama L., axis or chital deer, C. axis Erxleben, red deer, C. elephas L., and rusa deer, C. unicolor Kerr, are present in Queensland, and under fauna conservation legislation are protected. Results of the first survey since deer were introduced over 80 years ago indicate that present populations and distributions of the fallow, axis and rusa deer do not warrant and would not support a policy of open season hunting. Red deer offer possibilities in this regard, but before implementation could be considered, well defined and adequately staffed management areas would be required.
