NAVARINO - Bucks, does and fawns.
If you have seen any of them recently, the Department of Natural Resources wants to hear from you.
Operation Deer Watch started Thursday and runs until the end of September.
It's an online effort to help monitor the health of the herd, and get people involved with the process.
Luke Erb says he sees plenty of deer on his dairy farm west of Navarino.
"You always got your local deer that live in this little corner here and there, does and a few fawns," said Luke Erb, Navarino.
Erb says he knows about Operation Deer Watch.
"They want people to look at deer, write it down, so they can have a better idea how big a deer they are, how many," said Erb.
For the next two months, the Department of Natural Resources is asking people to pay attention to deer they see during daylight hours, and email the results to the agency.
That includes the number of does with fawns, does without fawns, lone fawns, bucks, and unknown deer. People should record the date and the deer management unit where deer were seen.
"If we can get people involved in watching wildlife, including deer, and then submitting those observations to us, that's going to make our data that much better," said Josh Jackl, DNR wildlife technician.
The DNR isn't just counting deer; it is counting on help from the public.14,000 letters were sent to hunters across the state asking for their help in the program.
"By targeting deer hunters, knowing they're the ones that are extremely interested in deer. Because they're the people who hunt them, hopefully, we can generate more interest and keep those people involved," said Brian Duhey, DNR wildlife survey coordinator.
Brian Duhey says Operation Deer Watch was a recommendation from the deer trustee report. Hunters say they like being involved in the process.
"It helps keep people happy because they're helping too, I suppose," said Erb.
"I think it does get people more involved. That's probably a good thing. It's definitely going to help some deer get bigger and more mature. Definitely going to be the deer I am looking for," said Tony Tomaro, Manawa.
