    For those of us lucky enough to take part. The latest mdc survey asks about deer sightings and kills. Then goes into mineral sites and CWD issues. Also it only covers rifle hunting. I started to fill out then I threw it in the trash. No option for comments to tell them they need to restrict out of state licenses, move to a 1 buck rule, and get rid of the deer pens.

    You forgot to mention move the rifle season to December, Then you'll have most everyone mad at you, except for shutting down the deer pens...

    My guess is they are only asking questions regarding regs changes that are being considered so they dont waste your time on ones that aren’t being considered.

    Yes I'm concerned they are focusing too much on CWD and mineral sites and it will be upsetting if they try killing off more deer or eliminate bait sights. There are plenty of other issues affecting deer hunting in Missouri that they ignore.

    They eliminated bait sites years ago. You can't bait deer for hunting.

    They are probably asking you if you have mineral block out in CWD county so they can bust you with a ticket .

    I believe they were trying to figure out how many people are aware of cwd and ifvtge public thinks it is a threat.

    Nothing better than a good scientific survey.... :D

    Don't like the questions being asked, just throw it in the trash.... :tup:

    I got one, already sent it in...Asked stuff about your opinion on deer sightings, satisfaction with deer mgmt program, Your firearms hunting info from this past year, cwd, collisions with deer, etc.

    It would seem this is the information they want comments on..... :wave1:

    Depending on the particular internet argument at hand, surveys are either worth their weight in gold or garbage, you pick.
