Bowhunters in Massachusetts keep a daily log of their hunting activities and observations of wildlife during the archery deer season (Oct. 16 – Nov. 25, 2017). Because archery hunters are usually very stealthy and camouflaged, they are uniquely suited to track valuable observations of wildlife including deer, wild turkey, black bear, and other species not commonly observed.
Game bird hunters in Massachusetts keep a daily log of their hunting activities and observations of game birds while hunting bobwhite quail, pheasant, woodcock, and grouse (Oct. 4 – Nov. 25, 2017). These observations will provide MassWildlife biologists with information on game bird populations across the state and allow them to evaluate hunter effort of various upland game bird species. MassWildlife seeks to maintain healthy game bird populations while ensuring quality hunting experiences for both wild and stocked birds across the Commonwealth.
MassWildlife and the Department of Transportation launched this volunteer-based monitoring program where citizens can report wildlife roadkill, as well as large migrations of pond-breeding amphibians across roadways.
MassWildlife conducts the Annual Brood Survey each year from June 1 through August 31 to estimate turkey numbers, productivity, and reproductive success.
