HUNTERS ASKED TO RECORD DEER HARVEST

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- With the close of the 2007-08 deer season, the Alabama Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) is asking hunters to report their deer harvests.

When Alabama's three-buck limit was implemented this past hunting season, all hunters were required to have a harvest record form in their possession. If they killed a buck, the details were to be recorded on the form.

To gather that harvest information, ADCNR is asking hunters to transfer it to an online form at www.outdooralabama.com/hunting/harvestdata.

Conservation Commissioner M. Barnett Lawley encourages hunters to use the online harvesting system. "Collecting this information will give us more management tools to protect the quality of the deer herd in the state," he said.

Even if a hunter did not harvest a deer, the Department would still like that information, Lawley said. "If a hunter was not successful, we need that data, too. We would also like to know the number of does harvested and the number of days hunters were in the field. Any factual data that we can get will help us," he said.

The online form asks for the following information: date of harvest, number of antler points, county where harvested, total number of does harvested and estimated number of days spent hunting in the 2007-08 season. The form is also set to accept turkey harvest information after turkey season closes in April.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama's natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources, State Parks, State Lands, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
