Bowhunters: We Need Your Help!

Please participate in the Bowhunter Observation Survey.

The Conservation Department needs bowhunters to record the deer, turkeys and furbearers they see while hunting. This information helps biologists gauge the health of wildlife populations and set hunting regulations.

It’s easy to participate. Just send an email to martha.mccrary@mdc.mo.gov. Write “Bowhunter Observation Survey” in the subject line, and don’t forget to include your name and mailing address. You can also send your name and address to:
Bowhunter Observation Survey
Missouri Department of Conservation
3500 East Gans Road
Columbia, MO 65201

We’ll send you a diary to record the deer, turkeys and furbearers you see while bowhunting. At the end of the season, drop the postage-paid diary in the mail. Once Conservation Department biologists tally the information, they’ll return your diary along with a summary of sightings for the entire state.

Key Messages: 

Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish.
