Emergency Exemption: Issuance of Permit for Endangered Species, 34759 [2010-14804]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 117 / Friday, June 18, 2010 / Notices respondents to report on the envelope the date and location of harvest for each bird. We combine the results of this survey with the harvest estimates obtained from the Migratory Bird Hunter Survey to provide speciesspecific national harvest estimates. The combined results of these surveys enable us to evaluate the effects of season length, season dates, and bag limits on the harvest of each species, and thus help us determine appropriate hunting regulations. The Sandhill Crane Harvest Survey is an annual questionnaire survey of people who obtained a sandhill crane hunting permit. At the end of the hunting season, we randomly select a sample of permit holders and ask them to report the date, location, and number of birds harvested for each of their sandhill crane hunts. Their responses provide estimates of the temporal and geographic distribution of the harvest as well as the average harvest per hunter, which, combined with the total number of permits issued, enables us to estimate the total harvest of sandhill cranes. Based on information from this survey, we adjust hunting regulations as needed. Number of annual respondents Activity 34759 II. Data OMB Control Number: 1018-0023. Title: Migratory Bird Surveys.
