Now that the rifle season is over, don’t forget to report your effort and observations in the annual deer hunter effort and sighting survey.
This survey asks you to record how many hours you hunted and how many deer, moose, bears, or other wildlife you saw each day out during the regular November deer season. This helps the department evaluate how hunting pressure and wildlife populations vary around the state.
The easiest way to complete the survey is to use the Deer Hunting Log feature in the Vermont Outdoors mobile app (links below). A web-based version of the survey can be found here https://anrweb.vt.gov/FWD/HunterEffortSurvey/EnterConservationID.aspx.
