Iowa Department of Natural Resources Annual Roadside Survey
Entry ID: ia_dnr_d_roadsidesurvey


Summary
Abstract: Since 1962, the Iowa Department of Natural
Resources has conducted annual roadside surveys to
monitor the abundance of gray partridge and
ring-necked pheasant. Data are obtained from 210,
30-mile routes, and counts are conducted on sunny,
cool mornings with heavy dew. The data are
analyzed for nine geographic regions and
statewide. Since 1963, additional data regarding
the size and distribution of the harvest of these
birds have been obtained from a random mail survey
of small game hunters. The data is summarized and
available in reports.
