Operation Deer Watch: Wisconsinites asked to record deer sightings

WISCONSIN– In an effort to provide important data for deer management, Wisconsinites are asked to report their deer sightings for the next two months.

DNR researchers are asking all participants to report bucks, does, and fawns they see between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30 via an online form.

The data being collected provides insight into the reproductive status of Wisconsin’s deer herd and helps shape deer management for the state.

If you would like to participate, have a tally sheet handy to record sightings and enter results online later.

“This is a fun and useful opportunity for everyone to enjoy Wisconsin’s plentiful wildlife,” said Brian Dhuey, DNR Wildlife Population And Harvest Assessment Specialist.

The DNR is encouraging everyone and anyone to participate.
