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

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
