West Virginia DNR

Charleston, W.Va. -(Ammoland.com)- West Virginia Division of Natural Resources personnel began a statewide survey of spring gobbler hunters in 1983, according to Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the DNR Wildlife Resources Section.

This useful survey has the hunter record items of interest by day, such as the number of gobblers heard, called in, missed and harvested.

Biologists are also interested in the number of other wildlife seen by hunters, and their most memorable experiences during the season.

“Data from the survey are then tabulated and compared against previous years in a report that is mailed back to all cooperators the next year,” noted Taylor. “It’s a great way to track wild turkey and other wildlife populations. In addition, it provides a great forum for hunters to express their opinions directly to wildlife biologists.”

Hunters wishing to help the Spring Gobbler Committee by completing the survey should go online to www.wvdnr.gov, select the Hunting Main Page and look for the Spring Gobbler Survey form and print it out.

You may also contact: Tammie Thompson, WVDNR, P.O. Box 67, Elkins, WV 26241, or phone 304-637-0245. Complete your daily observations and the survey questions, mail it back to the DNR, and you could be included in next year’s publication.
