Nevada Hunter’s Journals available for small-game hunters

By ThisIsReno


This hunting season the Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) encourages small game hunters to take the Nevada Hunter’s Journal into the field to log and track conditions and harvest information. Doing this will not only help hunters recollect important harvest and hunter effort data when filling out small game questionnaires, but it will also be a great memento to keep over the years to remember past hunting trips.

Every year NDOW’s Game Division mails questionnaires to small game and waterfowl hunters. The goal is to collect small game harvest and hunter effort data. NDOW biologists use this data to analyze trends, determine species abundance and to develop and evaluate management actions. To help hunters record accurate data on the questionnaires, the Game Division has initiated a three year trial period to test whether the Nevada Hunter’s Journal will be used by Nevada hunters to do this.

“It can be hard for hunters to recollect all the details of their hunt and the number of birds they harvested when we send them a questionnaire three months after the last hunting season ends,” said Craig Mortimore, NDOW’s migratory game bird staff biologist. “We hope that questionnaire recipients that have cataloged their days afield within their Nevada Hunter’s Journal and will be able to quickly and accurately complete our survey.”

The Nevada Hunter’s Journal provides space to record information such as the date, the game hunted, location, county, shots fired, game taken and much more. However, at the very least hunters should record the county and number of animals harvested because this data is used to analyze small game abundance and distribution.
Hunter’s that have not received a Nevada Hunter’s Journal in the mail can pick one up at any NDOW office or can call NDOW Headquarters at (775) 688-1500 to have one mailed to them.

The Nevada Hunter’s Journal was made possible by sponsors such as the Carson Valley Chukar Club, Wildlife and Habitat Improvement of Nevada, Nevada Chukar Foundation, Nevada Bighorns Unlimited – Reno and many others.
The Nevada Department of Wildlife (NDOW) protects, restores and manages fish and wildlife, promotes fishing, hunting, and boating safety. NDOW’s wildlife and habitat conservation efforts are primarily funded by sportsmen’s license and conservation fees and a Federal surcharge on hunting and fishing gear. Support wildlife and habitat conservation in Nevada by purchasing a hunting, fishing, or combination license. For more information, visit www.ndow.org.

Is this what you’re looking for? If you go to the link in the article (above), you will go to the main NDOW page. On the lower right of that page, you will see a green oval with a link to the questionnaire. The link for the questionnaire goes to http://www.nvdreamtag.org/uplandharvest.php.
