WMA Adjacent Landowner Survey

Thank you!

FWC would like to thank everyone who gave their time to participate in this survey. Your responses are critical for informing the best decisions for our state’s natural resources. The survey period is now closed.


Survey Summary

From January to July of 2022, FWC randomly surveyed 5,000 private landowners with property near Wildlife Management Areas using a 28-question mail survey. We wanted to better understand how to work with landowners near WMAs to enhance the natural areas we manage and the societal benefits WMAs brings to our state. To reach this goal, our survey sought to understand four general ideas:

  1. What kinds of people/entities own land near WMAs?
  2. How do these landowners think about and use WMAs?
  3. How do these landowners think about and interact with FWC?
  4. How do these landowners manage their land?
