The state Department of Environmental Conservation has launched a statewide deer hunting survey to help it shape its policies for future years.

“A high response rate to the survey will help ensure that the study findings are representative of all deer hunters across New York State,” said department Commissioner Joe Martens in a news release.

DEC needs hunters’ views to understand how different buck harvest strategies may affect hunter satisfaction. In mid-October, Cornell University staff mailed questionnaires to a statewide random sample of 7,000 big game license holders with an invitation to participate in the survey.

DEC encourages all hunters who receive a questionnaire to complete and return it promptly.
