CHEYENNE - Each year the Wyoming Game and Fish Department conducts a Moose Hunter Survey to estimate harvest, hunter success, and hunter effort to help plan next year’s hunting season. Surveys were mailed last week to all 493 hunters with a 2013 moose license.
Game and Fish Harvest Survey coordinator Gail Sheridan said that even if a hunter did not harvest a moose or decided not to hunt this year, their responses are important to the survey.
“We encourage online response as this method significantly reduces survey costs and data processing errors that can result with paper copy surveys,” Sheridan said.
Moose hunters can log on to wgfd.wyo.gov, select “Harvest Surveys” located on the Hunting Resources bar and use the password provided on the survey card. Hunters who have questions about the survey or prefer to complete it over the phone, please can contact Gail Sheridan, at Gail.Sheridan@wyo.govor (307) 777-4567.
Sheridan emphasized it is important that all hunters respond to the online moose survey even if they were checked in the field. Surveys provide important information on the status of the herds. Information is used to develop future management strategies.
