CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is asking turkey hunters to take a few minutes and participate in the harvest survey now underway for the 2011 fall turkey season.
Nearly 2,000 survey letters are being mailed to both resident and nonresident hunters who held both general and limited quota fall turkey licenses. The surveys can be completed online or by filling out the form and mailing it in.
Hunter Survey Coordinator Gail Sheridan said the online method is more efficient. "Each survey letter has instructions for applying online and a hunter key that must be entered to complete the survey," she said. "By applying online, it saves theGame and Fish money in postage and processing and speeds up the procedure to compile survey results. But, regardless of the method used, it is important that the survey is completed."
Everyone who held a fall turkey license will receive a survey. The Game and Fish emphasizes it is still very important forall surveys to be completed even if the hunter was unsuccessful or did not go hunting. Biologists use information from the survey to monitor populations and recommend hunting seasons. Hunters who held multiple turkey licenses are askedto provide information for each license on their survey.
