From Indiana Department of Natural Resources
-- Hunters can help monitor the abundance and distribution of deer and other wildlife species in state forests by completing an online survey after each hunting trip to an Indiana state forest this year.
“Hunters are uniquely skilled observers in the outdoors and are in a position to provide feedback that can help us better manage resources,” according to John Seifert, director of the DNR Division of Forestry.
Every time a hunter returns from a hunting trip, he or she is asked to go to report observations online at
Multiple hunting trips made on the same day would ideally warrant separate visits to the website to complete a survey. State Forests in Indiana are listed online at http://www.in.gov/dnr/forestry/3631.htm.
The survey will be available all year online, and is open to all hunters who hunt in the state forests. Completion will take a hunter a few minutes, and complete instructions are listed at the website.
