Tracking Hunters and Game Using GPS Technology

In Western Maryland a project will continue this year which monitors the movement of bears and hunters during hunting season. The project is designed to see what reaction bears might have to the presence of hunters in the area. Hunters and bears have been equipped with GPS tracking devices so that researchers can track the movements of both…. Kinda like watching someone else play a video game as you can watch the movement of both sides.

“If a hunter’s in close proximity to a bear, how does the bear react? How are bears reacting overall when the hunters go into the woods? Do the bears change their movements? Do they not? That’s one of the things we’re trying to find out,” said biologist Steven Bittner.”

  1. If you are in the state of Texas, I find the best report would be to go through Texas A&M University. Send them your sample and in about 7-10 days you will know. You can get sample bags and the info for them through your local county extension office.
