2007 Statewide Deer Hunter Survey: Participation During the ’06 Seasons, Opinions about Hot-Button Issues, and Trends in Characteristics of Hunters.

The main purposes of this research were: (1) assess hunters’ attitudes and beliefs about the possibility of experimentally changing the buck bag limit and buck harvest standard used in the state, (2) assess deer hunters’ interest in bear hunting opportunities, and (3) continue statewide, long-term monitoring of trends in deer hunter effort and field experiences.

Despite substantial differences in the availability of DMPs within the state, especially
between the Northern Zone and Southern Zone, we found great consistency in application for,
and use of, DMPs among hunters in the various geographic zones. Indeed, the mean number
applied for, received, and filled per hunter was nearly identical for hunters in the Northern,
Southeastern, and NYC-LI strata (Table 9). Respondents from the Central-western stratum
applied for and used more DMPs than hunters in the other parts of the state. Further, a smaller
proportion of hunters from Central-Western NY applied for no DMPs, and a higher proportion
applied for two DMPs, compared to hunters from other strata (X2

= 1, 011, df = 6, p < 0.001).

Assuming that each hunter could apply for a maximum of two DMPs to use somewhere
in the state, Central-Western hunters had the highest application rate. Those hunters applied for
about three-quarters (76%) of the possible DMPs for which they could have applied, compared
with slightly over one-half (53-58%) of possible DMPs by hunters in the other strata. Overall,
hunters from Southeastern and NYC-LI strata were less likely to fill DMPs they had received
(i.e., 25-27%), compared to hunters from Northern and Central-Western strata (31-32%).
