report deer sightings, including bucks, does and fawns, between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30 via an easy-to-use online form.
Data collected provides insights into the reproductive status of Wisconsin’s deer herd and helps shape deer management for the state.
Many participants carry a printable tally sheet with them in the car to record sightings and then enter their results online later. For safety, participants should only record sightings when their vehicle is stopped, not while driving.
“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 encourages everyone interested in deer, from hunters and trappers to outdoor enthusiasts, to take part.”
