Opinion & Attitude Survey Toward Deer Management in Georgia

Participation in Outdoor Activities

Participation in outdoor activities varied greatly from group to group. Hunters were the most active group-a larger percentage of hunters relative to the general population and landowners had participated in each of the five activities discussed in the survey. Landowners were more active than were the general population.

  • The top activity among the general population was watching wildlife within 1 mile of home (64%), and 39% had taken a trip of at least a mile to view wildlife. Just under half of the general population had fished (47%).
  • The top activity among hunters was fishing (84%), followed closely by big game hunting (83%). A majority of hunters had viewed wildlife within 1 mile of home (78%) or taken a trip of at least 1 mile to view wildlife (64%).
  • The top activity among landowners was wildlife viewing within 1 mile of home (75%), and a majority had fished (58%). Landowners' rates of big game and small game hunting was approximately double that of the general population.
