Starting Jan. 15, 2022, Minnesota deer hunters can use an online questionnaire to report wildlife they see during each hunt. The observation survey will be used by the DNR to do population estimates of various species in each state park.

Using a mobile device or laptop, hunters can enter information on the DNR website about wildlife they see each day of hunting, including deer, turkeys, bears, fishers and other species.

The DNR also encourages hunters to report specific information about any deer they harvest, including antler size.

Hunters are also encouraged to fill out a report after each hunt even if they don’t see any deer that day.
