Georgia  Deer Harvest Summaries

Georgia DNR, Wildlife Resources Division -
Georgia Deer Harvest Summaries

Introduction
As part of The Wildlife Resources Division's (WRD) goal to maintain a quality deer herd in Georgia, estimates of the State's deer harvest, deer hunter effort, and deer hunter success are acquired each year and then used to adjust hunting regulations in subsequent years to achieve desired results.

How does the WRD get these estimates?
Harvest estimates are obtained by asking a random sample of Georgia deer hunters about their deer hunting effort and success during the past year. These results are then applied to the total number of deer hunters in the state. The total number of deer hunters in the state is obtained from the license sales database.

Who conducts the annual hunter harvest survey?
WRD contracts with Responsive Management, a professionally recognized neutral party, to conduct the survey each year. WRD and Responsive Management (RM) work together to develop a scientific survey questionnaire and to generate a random a sample of hunting license holders from the license sales database. RM then administers the survey (by telephone) to this random sample of hunters, analyzes the feedback and provides the results to WRD.

What kinds of questions are asked on the survey?
The survey is made up of several questions pertaining to the recent hunting season, such as number of deer killed, sex of deer killed, county where deer were killed, number of days hunted, and many more. Averages for all these answers are calculated and applied to the entire deer hunter population to generate statewide estimates. The survey also is used to ask timely and important questions regarding hunter opinions on hunting and conservation-related issues. The results of these attitude and opinion questions often are used to scientifically evaluate support or opposition for a particular issue or proposal and also to help direct or justify changes in State hunting regulations.
