DNR Deer hunt data

5 posts in this topic

I've been watching this forum for quite some time now, and decided to throw in a question for Mr. Cornicelli.

The DNR does a great job at breaking down the deer harvest data, but my question is why does it take 6 months or more after the seasons are over to post the numbers? It's all computerized, everything's run through the electronic licensing system, so it certainly seems like after the first year of using ELS, the template for the data would already be there and would automatically update as the numbers came in from the system. There should be no reason for the numbers to not be ready until July or later

It usually takes until March to get everything cleaned up and analyzed. Certainly, you are free to call me on the phone and I can go into great detail regarding everything that is required to analyze the harvest data. I actually sent the harvest report over to our web team in late March and I just noticed it never got posted (I don't routinely check our HSOforum because I don't need to). I resent the file after I read the first complaint on this board regarding the length of time it takes. That was an oversight on my part as I didn't check our HSOforum and didn't get a single request all spring for the report. I just presumed it was sitting on our web page when it really wasn't. I just checked our HSOforum and unless it's hidden, it's still not up. I'll deal with it on Monday and make sure it's posted.

Again, if you want to talk about steps I go through to analyze the data and construct the report, please call me. Otherwise, suffice to say it's not so easy as automatically dumping the data into a spreadsheet. For one, registration isn't 100% electronic yet.

Thanks for the direct answer Lou, I appreciate your willingness to come online, with your own name as a user name no less, and answer questions and explain the DNR thought processes. I am not sure if there is another topic in FM where the DNR is so fairly represented. With all of the changes this year, I anticipate a very busy and confusing fall for everyone.....

I appreciate that very much but to be honest, there aren't many changes this year. More lottery areas, a few more restrictions on permit use and youth antlerless areas pretty much sums it up. It's minor compared to the last few years! smile Well .. there is Zone 3 but I don't own that one!

Zone 3 is/was my hunting grounds and was what I was refering too. I am heading home to IA this year to hunt with friends/family. We are talking about flip flopping every other year, we'll have to work a little bit to find some land in zone 3 but we have connections

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
