ASK GAME & FISH

"Gail, why is it important that hunters respond to the Game and Fish harvest surveys?"

Harvest surveys are a critical source of information that wildlife managers use when making decisions about future hunting seasons. Because the harvest survey provides a lot of vital  information for wildlife managers, it is important that we receive responses from hunters who are surveyed. Responses to harvest surveys are used to assess the number and success of licensed hunters, provide another way to monitor the growth or decline of wildlife populations, and make adjustments to the next hunting season’s license quotas. Harvest surveys are done annually when hunting seasons close.

Not every hunter receives a harvest survey request. Even if you had a license but did not have the opportunity to go afield and hunt, we need you to tell us you did not hunt, as that is important information as well. Also, responding to the survey as quickly as possible after you are done hunting, preferably on-line, helps keep survey costs down. All responses to the survey are voluntary and kept confidential.

As always, thanks for your help on completing our harvest surveys, as it is key information that helps Game and Fish manage your wildlife.
