Hey all! My name is Catherine Cummings and I am a PhD student at Auburn University who has been examining issues surrounding Chronic Wasting Disease, and with the recent discovery of CWD in Louisiana, we were hoping to develop a better understanding of Louisiana deer huntersâ concerns, desires, and attitudes. Understanding what YOU as a hunter in Louisiana want in regards to CWD will help ultimately improve the ability of agencies and managers to meet the needs of both hunters and wildlife. My team and I have developed a survey for deer hunters to help us collect this information, and we are hoping that you will take some time to fill it out (and maybe even pass it to some other fellow hunters to help us increase our sample size). If you would like to fill out this survey, click https://auburn.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_d6UV2MuPSAJ7qQe . All information in this survey will be anonymous, and will not be shared with any other group. However, summaries of the data generated will be made public in report form. This project is being conducted solely by personnel in the College of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn, and is being financially supported solely by Auburn as well. No outside organizations are involved in the funding, development, or implementation of this survey. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to reach out to me through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We really appreciate your time, respect your point of view, and want to understand it.
