Bowhunter Sighting Log

Recommended Posts

Got mine in the mail today . I think this makes 19 years of doing the Sighting Log . Did anyone else get theirs ?

I had done them for years. Annoyed that you can't put two locations in a day and always wondered how they calculated deer sightings.   If you hunt the same area and put down you saw the same 4 deer everyday is it an accurate count?

Do you get anything for sending them in?

You get the satisfaction that you helped supply information to the DEC . I have received a 5 , a 10 and a 15 year patch for doing the surveys .

Do they just send surveys/logs to people at random or did you all request to be a part of the program?

I've never got one or fiiled anything out and they just mailed me one . I'm guessing they got my name off the academy's application for tax exempt status.

If thats true they did their homework because that was all filed under a shell corporation, WNY Lightscapes

My grandson just got one in the mail on Friday. This is his first year as a regular hunter, (no longer a Jr hunter) as he's only 16. So I assume that they just draw randomly, to do the survey. I have never had one sent to me.

That’s a shame...as “students” you should expect heightened protections and security around your personal info. I also heard that not everyone sent in their signed permission to attend the field trip to Dino’s. Slippery slope!

I dont think its completely random. If you request a copy then they'll gladly give you one. more participation the better. I havent gotten mine yet.

They never sent me a fifteen year patch, :search:.


Despite our ever-changing,ever-indignant world with its growing ignorance of and indifference to the ways of the wild, I remain a predator, pitying those who revel in artificiality and synthetic success while regarding me and my kind as relics of a time and place no longer valued or understood.James

Then people would just get them and forge the numbers to hand one in . Theres still enough honest people to just do it to help the cause.
