Hey Ridge,
Just fill that thing out twice, once for me. I'm sure since we hunted the same piece of land our answers will be the same.

Just kidding, I'll get around to filling it out once I'm sure I'm done for the year which I'm leaning towards now. Might as well cut my losses...

Very Basic Survey... Some questions are vague and they need to add a comment section maybe limit it to 200 characters to give some input like the change of date etc... Seems they rarely let you give any additional info and from the questiosn they can twist it to make it look good for them...

Oh well they don't really use it being it all has to do with their "estimated" numbers...
