Human-dimensions research provides wildlife managers with feedback from the users of sites they manage. These user data can help managers to make informed decisions that aim to reach long-term management goals while addressing users’ opinions. Today, with the advent of smartphones and growing internet connectivity, wildlife managers are interested in using online methods to collect feedback from site users. Online surveys are substantially lower cost compared to more traditional, paper or mail-in type surveys. This proposal for research outlines a hunter survey study at Oakwood Bottoms Greentree Reservoir that will attempt to evaluate the use of paper and online surveys in gathering feedback from site users.
