The survey link has been sent via email to 942 license holders who provided email addresses at the time of license purchase. An additional 1,455 license holders without an email address on file are receiving a letter directing them to the Game and Fish website where the survey can be accessed.
“Completing the survey online is more efficient,” said Game and Fish harvest survey coordinator Gail Sheridan. “It only takes a few minutes. Each survey completed online, saves about $3.50 in postage and processing as well as speeds up the reporting process.”
The survey is a valuable tool for the Game and Fish to estimate harvest, hunter success, effort, and provides information to help wildlife biologists plan the next year’s hunting season. It is very important for all surveys to be completed even if the license holder was unsuccessful or did not go hunting as effort is a significant factor in the final reports.
