Mass Wildlife is asking for Massachusetts bowhunters to keep a season-long "sightings log" for all of the wildlife they observe while bowhunting.

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.

Please consider printing one out and keeping track here:

Also please consider keeping an upland bird log:

Better use of time than staring at my phone. Thank you for passing along!

It was about time for something like this to happen. I've seen people with way too many kills for one go.

I think this is really clever in order to control what population is left for future hunters. I'm an avid hunter and I do love to chase down some white tails or wild turkeys during the season but lately it has become impossible due to the ongoing reduced populations. Thus, this comes in to play at a very critical moment. It's always important to keep a balance in the populations of natural habitants as it can create big issues. The other day we had a flux of wild animals close to our homes and we had to call a wildlife removal service to assist us.
