The tasks regarding hunting management include emergency feeding and keeping feeding racks, high seats, as well as establishing wildlife food plots, which are the  places with different species of bushes and trees eaten by animals ( willows, tilias, etc. ), but also buffer plots, which are  places located on the border of the field and the forest, and where cultivated are: corn, clover, topinambour and other plants. These places make animals stay at in these parts of the forest, where potential damages would be smaller.  In recent years, there has been noticed the significant decrease of the damaged  forest  stands.
