DNR Wildlife Survey Seeks Deer Hunters

With the gun deer hunting season beginning on November 20, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is asking deer hunters to participate in the DNR’s online Wildlife Survey. Since hunters see many other animals while in the woods, the DNR is asking deer hunters to report observations about and sightings of bobcats, badgers, elk, turkeys, raccoons, and a host of other woodland animals. This is the third year of the Wildlife Survey, which provides the DNR with information about trends in wildlife abundance and distribution. Hunters are also encouraged to submit trail-cam photos of less common species to the Survey. For more information and to participate, click on the link above.
