The March issue of the Wildlife Society Bulletin is now available

Articles focus on duck hunters’ bag limit compliance, LGBTQ+ inclusion and more

The Wildlife Society Bulletin is an open-access journal of The Wildlife Society. Published four times annually, it is one of the world’s leading scientific journals covering wildlife science, management and conservation, focusing on aspects of wildlife that can assist management and conservation. 

As duck hunting has declined, researchers have looked at ways to bolster the activity. Wildlife professionals assumed simpler regulations would help recruit new hunters, but bag limits can be confusing. In a study in the March issue of the Wildlife Society Bulletin, researchers sought to understand hunters’ understanding and compliance with regulations.

Other articles look at using drones to count kangaroo rat burrows, bald eagle predation on threatened murrelets, LGBTQ+ inclusion in wildlife and more.
