WY: Smallgame, upland game bird and waterfowl surveys now underway

CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is asking more than 15,000 small game, upland game bird and waterfowl hunters to take a few minutes to participate in the on-line harvest survey now underway.

The yellow postcards mailed last week simply instruct the license

holder how to access the on-line survey. Anyone that has not responded

online by March 21, 2011, will receive a paper copy of the survey in the

mail.

Harvest Survey Coordinator Gail Sheridan, said regardless of the method used, it is important that hunters respond to the survey.

"Filling out the online survey is encouraged as it improves accuracy,

saves mailing and printing costs, and reduces processing time,"

Sheridan said. "The surveys are important to determine hunting

activity for the various species, and information gathered is used for

setting seasons for the coming year. The survey only takes a few

minutes, and the information is a very important management tool for

Wyoming's wildlife."

Both forms of the survey give complete directions for filling out

surveys either online or by hand.
