I see in Game Check they have a comparison tab so you can check this years total against the last two years by county.

The biggest thing I see on that is that people that hunt public land don't report deer rofl

That and the people are definitely getting more educated. The ones that did not know what county they killed their deer in decreased by almost 30% in the 18-19 season. State should be proud, they are teaching people something. People now seem to be learning what county they are actually hunting in. Overall reported harvest is up 10.5%, even with all the crappy weather, as compared to the previous year. Does that mean our deer population is expanding or does it simply mean that more people are participating in Chuckie Check??????? Sure wish there was some way to actually determine if there is any statistical validity to the sample data being collected........

Most people I talked to (a bunch ) this year didn't report nothing. None that I know of went over the limits . Matter of time theyll say , we'll it ain't working let's force tags down their throat's

What a waste of money and time .

I agree with this. Can't just look at this year compared to last. Have to compare all three years of mandatory. First year and this year real close. Last year was a slow year by the numbers. Still a small sample but appears to be consistent to me. According to Chuckle around 35% reported the first year and with the numbers so close I would say that 35% reporting should be close this year.

At what point do the numbers get put to use?

So how do these numbers let us know how the deer herd is doing?

I would like to see the number of hunters reporting in each county compared to the number of licensed hunters.

I’m not sure what the answer is but the current system is not it. Maybe tags but that may be government over reach?

A fine example of a gathering of useless data. I would like to see a written summary of how this data can be of any use to someone who hunts in this state.

This is from the DCNR website on Game Check:

Managing Alabama’s deer population and its deer hunters is a unique and challenging process. WFF strives to be proactive in its management strategies and to keep the best interests of the deer populations and deer hunters at the forefront of the decision-making process. As data collection efforts improve and WFF gain a clearer understanding of the desires of the state’s deer hunters and the status of its deer herd, changes to the length and timing of Alabama’s deer season, bag limits, and other aspects of deer hunting in Alabama are likely in upcoming years.

Does it really make sense that deer numbers are up over last year, but man hours in the woods is probably at a 5 year low due to the majority of weekends having rain? Curious for an explanation for that. Nearly each county is a couple hundred over where they were last year. Either numbers are improving OR reporting is up OR the numbers are being fudged. Wonder which it is? Would love to hear from processors that were saying this was going to end up being their worst season in years back in January. Something doesn't make sense.

Seems like it will take years to get a majority to check deer in. My opinion anyway lol

Less than 1K in both Coosa and Elmore...... hahahahahaha!

I'd like to see the results of the estimate from the mailed out surveys for this year, versus what game check said was killed.


You gonna pull them pistols, or whistle Dixie?

Game check is the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen. On the other hand, I guess we should just be glad we're not getting stopped every 5 miles because we have mud on our tires and an orange hat reflecting off the windshield. Out west they set up stops regularly.
