WMU 502 aerial ungulate survey : January 4 and 5, 2017

Description

Presents the results of an aerial ungulate survey conducted in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 502 on January 4 and 5, 2017, using the distance sampling method. The objective was to estimate total population sizes, population densities, and age and sex ratios for both moose and white-tailed deer. Aerial surveys are the primary method used to assess the population size, distribution, population trends and herd composition of ungulates in Alberta. This information supports the effective management and conservation of ungulates, and is used to set hunting licence allocations, identify areas with agricultural depredation problems, and determine priority areas for recovery actions.
