Pennsylvania Game News - January 2013 - 16

2011-12

Improve the public’s appreciation of wildlife, and their awareness and understanding of wildlife resource management.

The Human Dimensions Specialist completed a second year in the Bureau of Information and Education. This individual is responsible for supervising the Outreach and Education Specialists, in addition to the following research: One mail survey was conducted and overseen by the HD Specialist: A survey of license buying hunters about Game News magazine. Additionally, the HD specialist was responsible for coordinating a telephone survey of Pennsylvania residents about deer with Responsive Management that was completed in early 2012. The results of this general public survey have been presented in front of various groups of stakeholders in Pennsylvania. The HD Specialist also was frequently consulted by the Bureau of Wildlife Management to consult on the question wording, methodology and analysis of mail surveys conducted by biologists in that bureau, and taught a monthly class to BWM staff members about survey research using Dillman’s Internet, Mail and Mixed-Mode Surveys: The Tailored Design Method and other texts. The HD specialist was also involved in the development of six focus groups of lapsed hunters throughout Pennsylvania. These focus groups will be conducted by Responsive Management. After the completion of these focus groups the HD specialist will be responsible for writing another lapsed hunter questionnaire. With three years of PALS data now available, the HD specialist and other I&E Bureau staff have met regularly to review the license buying habits of Pennsylvania hunters through various data requests to the Bureau of Administration. The HD Specialist also upgraded the SPSS software to include a regression package and was thus able to conduct additional analyses on the FY2010-11 lapsed hunter survey using logistic regression and other multivariate analyses. Results from the analysis of this questionnaire will be used to inform the question development for the focus groups of lapsed hunters. Game News continues to be the primary voice of the Game Commission, and the hunting stories, natural history content and, as always, Field Notes, remain popular with many readers, not just in Pennsylvania, but throughout the country and to our servicemen and women throughout the world. Game News also features articles about Game Commission research and management projects, law enforcement accounts by our WCOs, and agency news. Game News “Crossings” columnist Ben Moyer captured first place in the “Column” category in the 2012 Outdoor Writers Association of America Excellence in Craft writing awards competition for his work in 2011 issues of Game News. We’re in our fifth year of posting entire Game News issues online through Nxtbook. The online version allows users to conduct searches, go directly to particular features and, by using a zoom feature, make the type larger and easier to read. Accessing Game News in digital formats is a top priority to accommodate our younger readers. Game News remains popular on newsstands throughout the state and is now offered in all Wal-Mart stores in Pennsylvania.
