Still Time to Submit Observations with Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/27/2016
State wildlife officials are reminding hunters to send in their wildlife observations to the Department of Natural Resources. The agency had asked hunters to record all of their hunting activity throughout the deer season, even if no wildlife sightings were made
during a hunt. The observations provide biologists with an index to abundance for many wildlife species.
All wildlife sightings made from September through early January can be submitted until the survey closes on January 31. Participants can access the survey by going to the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov, and search keyword "Deer Hunter Wildlife." Tally sheets can
be filled out either electronically or printed from the site and later mailed.
At the end of each year, participants will receive a personalized summary of all recorded wildlife from that season. Final results of the survey will be made available at the end of February 2016.
