User Survey Implemented on Sherman Wildlife Area

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will be implementing a user survey on the Sherman Wildlife Area. The survey program is already used successfully throughout Kansas and will provide visitation, man-days and other important data for all recreational uses that occur on the Sherman area. More specifically the survey will provide better hunter / harvest data which will assist with future wildlife management on the area.

The free survey card will be available at the kiosk located at the main entrance near Smoky Gardens. Each user must acquire a survey card to access the area. The card will be a two piece survey in which the user will complete the top portion when they arrive and place in the survey box. The bottom portion will remain in the user possession while on the area and then completed and placed in the survey box at the end of the outing.

We appreciate you assistance and understanding in the implementation of this survey and look forward to the acquired data and continued improvements on the Sherman Wildlife Area. If you have questions please contact Kent Hensley at (785) 726-3212 or
