Collecting, recording, and interpreting deer harvest and hunter observation data is vital to monitoring the success of your deer management program and prescribing deer harvest and habitat recommendations that will help achieve your specific deer management goals.
Information from harvested deer sheds light on the quality and health of the deer herd and is essentially the backbone of your program and should be collected annually. Hunter observation data provides insight to the adult sex ratio of the herd, and allows you to monitor the hunting quality of your property and the productivity of the hunting strategies you use.
With this data, our staff of certified wildlife biologists are able to provide you with unrivaled deer data analysis, graphic displays of important data trends, and an easy to read harvest summary report that includes custom recommendations to meet your deer management objectives.
Not only will Westervelt provide you with a detailed harvest summary report and recommendations that will keep you on track, but if desired, your Westervelt biologist can meet with you, friends that hunt with you, or your hunting club to personally review the report, discuss the status of the deer herd, and make sure you understand the recommendations provided.
