Annual Volunteer Deer Surveys Due Wednesday
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/28/2020

Operation Deer Watch, an annual citizen-science survey that collects information on deer, gives Wisconsin residents a great opportunity to assist with deer herd management efforts. Data from this survey provides insight to the reproductive status of Wisconsin's deer herd for 2020 and helps shape deer management for the state.

To get involved, record all bucks, does and fawns seen during the day through September 30. Daily observations can be tracked using an online tally sheet.

"This is a fun and useful opportunity for everyone to enjoy Wisconsin's plentiful wildlife," said DNR Surveys Coordinator Brian Dhuey. "The Department of Natural Resources encourages anyone interested in deer, from hunters and trappers to outdoor enthusiasts, to take part."

Data from the survey is also used by County Deer Advisory Councils to develop deer season framework, harvest quotas and permit level recommendations.
