QDMA's 09 Report

Postby Goose » Fri Feb 06, 2009 6:26 pm

I read the QDMA's 09 report and thought I'd share with you the WI related stuff. I took notes as I read it so hopefully I got it all right [8|]
1999-2005-Number of 1.5 bucks harvested went from 68% in 99 to 51% in 05
In 2005 20% of the bucks harvested were 3.5 or older which is double from 1999 (10%)
WI leads the nation in anterless harvest with approximately 274,000 annually
60-65% of all deer harvested are antlerless
(QDM recommends that adult bucks (1.5 or older) should constitute less than half of the total deer harvest and 1.5's should constitute 1/2 of the buck harvest)
WI has spent $32 million on CWD from 2002-2006
States spend on average $25 per test and test thousands annually
1 in 99 vehicles registered in WI are involved in a deer/vehicle collision
1996-2005  WI is number 1 in the nation with 4,976 entries into P&Y and B&C followed by Illinois with 3,699
Of the top 50 counties in the nation 26 are from WI
Buffalo County claims number 1 in the nation with 520 total entries
Again this is from QDMA's annual report and most of the info seems to be from 1999-2005

Thats a very interesting report Goose. It's pretty special that over half of the top 50 counties in the nation come from Wisconsin.
