Re: GC Meeting Live Stream Video - Link

I find it quite ironic that the surveys they send out.....only 60% reply....even though 100%(6000) of the one survey was successful deer hunters...60% seems to be a national average...no matter what agency it is.

Turned it off. The link went dead about 20 minutes into the deer section stuff. Up, down - they must have closed and rebooted the link - up down and now just down.

I'll tune in again tomorrow. Hope things work better.

Got many things to do today, didn't make it back for the deer presentation.
Was nice to finally meet Dick and shake his hand. Heck, John S even showed up for Dick's award. Musta been a big deal. LOL

Congrats to Dick!

Ya know, I am always impressed when I listen to these guys. Rosenberry was great and Gustafson great as well.

Interesting thing, they not only check deer numbers thru their regular estimating process, but also check them with the Game Take Survey and then, the last 2 years, they sent out survey questions to deer hunters.

All three sets of data, backed up their deer harvest estimates.

Funny to, in 1995, 60% of hunters thought there were to few deer.

In 2011, 64% of hunters thought there were to few deer.

Imagine that?

Commissioner Weaner may have had am "ah ha" moment when he realized that no matter what the PGC did, 60 some percent of hunters would never have enough deer.

Re: GC Meeting Live Stream Video - Link

Could that be translated to say that one third of the hunters are right two thirds of the time?
Is the converse also true?

I will say this, in 1995, we had just gone thru HR in the state, the first one. In Tioga County, on public lands, we went from tons of deer to very few. So, the timing of that survey also correlates to a time after a major herd reduction, so, I'd not be surprised that 60% were upset.

It was about 96 or 97 when I went to my first PGC meeting, Po'd because of not enough deer.

Had they taken that survey in 1985 or 1986, the percentages MAY have been different.

Just sayin'.......
