Re: Harvest number accuracy for bears
So an actual check station is appox 100%, deer harvest reports are around 50%. Seems like a deer check station would then give a more accurate estimate to the total number of deer kill.Why not increase the price of liscenses to pay for people to work the check stations, do a 3 year study to see what the difference is check stations vs estimate harvest reports and see if there actual system is accurate.It surprises me that all bear hunters will report there kill but deer hunters don't.Isn't it alot easier for people to report a deer, definately less time consuming, no need to leave there house and drive somewhere at $4.00 a gallon. Why are bear hunters so honest and deer hunters aren't? Aren't they usually the same person?
