Bruin Ecological Appearance Rate - BEAR - by County.
We know from this that primary bear voters (analyzed between June and July 15th, annually), have higher turnout than general election bear voters. Technically speaking, we visited high percentages of bait stations across the Northern part of WI.  Yum!  The final week of August, however, is the harvesting period in Wisconsin - the time when our bear-ethren are “purged from the rolls” in the magnitude of 5,000+ per year.  So while we anticipate turnout will be lower this fall, we know that bears will still make their voices heard across the state, and scare the bear-jeezus out of some poll workers.
