DMAP reporting rate

I thought this was interesting.It shows the actual reporting rate and actual reported harvest in each of DCNR's dmap units.It looks like 40-50% of hunters still refuse to report whether or not they've killed a deer.Some areas also had some pretty high success rates even though 50% of the hunters refused to report which skewed the results way down.

Re: DMAP reporting rate

Boy, I'd love to be able to revoke the licenses of people who don't report a kill, be it DMAP or otherwise.

Poachers don't report their kills, so, I consider a non reporter, a poacher.

Absoultely! Let them buy the general license but deny them the ability to purchase additional tags!

Re: DMAP reporting rate

I couldnt believe how low the dmap reporting rate was when I first saw it, doesnt not reporting make the hunter ineligable to receive dmap tags in the future?

Its not about what you harvest, its about the time spent afield with family and friends.

Re: DMAP reporting rate

An age-old problem that's gotten worse. My solution, would be to do away with report cards and require mandatory online or call-in reports. Case closed.

The report card only takes a few minutes to fill out and send it (at no cost), so online or call-in reports won't be any more convenient for successful hunters, than the current report cards are.

No more report cards, no viable excuse like "Duh, mine musta got lost in the mail", whenever an attempt is made to "punish" those who refuse to comply with that requirement.

With an online PALS report or phone call, no more excuses. No report, no new license the following year. People are still free to make things up, either way, as to whether you got a deer and don't report it.

But if your deer was field or processor checked and you don't make a report, you pay the price. No more "lost in the mail" defenses, if a WCO presses charges for failure to report a deer kill.

Now someone will say "Not everyone has access to a computer or a phone." Everyone had access to the US Postal Service and the reporting rate is less than 40%.

Re: DMAP reporting rate

Denny, everyone HAS access to a computer, and someone who will help them use it. Public libraries have them, and you don't have to have a library card to do so. Even the Amish have access to telephones.
