This is just a partial study for an ample research regarding evolution of species from Cervidae family in Romania. The programme is developed in collaboration with Romanian Hunter’s Federation. The main purpose of this study is to reveal the reality, to find causes and to elaborate long term strategies in direction of biodiversity conservation, especially for wild game. In the last years the Romanian hunters indicate that the number of roe deer population decreasing, because of intensive agriculture and also because of high number of predators (bear, wolf and lynx population). The analysis is based on the official data from national evaluation of sedentary game in Giurgiu County. Hunting territories in this area are managed by National Forest Authority, county associations of hunters and other associations for conservation of biodiversity and management of hunting territories. The real cervidae livestock was analyzed between 2006 and 2015 by county, and sex, and in comparison with the optimal livestock (maximal number of individuals who can leave in a hunting area without causing damage to the agricultural fields or in the forest). Considering the new agricultural techniques and technologies it is relatively normal to find a numerical depreciation of wild game. In analysed period in Giurgiu County, the cervidae populations is good and representative. Also, there were analyzed the differences between what can be seen in hunting territories and what is reported. As a conclusion, the official evaluation is not perfect and the problem is to put together population from fence area (intensive growth) with the population from free area. In this case, it is needed to evaluate exactly the livestock and to developed a long term strategy for conservation of biodiversity.
