Elk NetworkWyoming Hunters Reminded to Submit Harvest Surveys

General | November 17, 2022

Below is a news release from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department wants to know how your Wyoming hunt went this year.  Many hunters have received or will receive a harvest survey via e-mail or the U.S. Postal Service. The survey gathers harvest information and feedback on the 2022 hunting season. It takes only a few minutes to complete and contributes valuable data for monitoring the state’s wildlife populations, setting future quotas, season dates and other regulations.

Because of the large volume of antelope, deer and elk license holders a random sampling of those licensed hunters are surveyed. Not all license holders of those species will receive a request to complete a harvest survey. However, nearly all license holders for moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, black bear, mountain lion, gray wolf, wild turkey, furbearer, sandhill crane and light goose conservation order are included in the survey process.

Hunters who receive and complete an antelope, deer or elk harvest survey will be entered in a drawing to win one of several prizes. Prizes are donated by:

  • Hi Mountain Jerky
  • Huntin’ Fool
  • JAX Outdoor Gear
  • Kenetrek Boots

To be eligible for prizes, hunters who are selected for a survey must submit responses by Jan. 5 for antelope, Jan. 26 for deer and Feb. 2 for elk.

Some hunters may receive a survey before their season ends, but Game and Fish asks hunters to wait until they are finished hunting or their season is over before filling out the survey. Responding online is the best way to submit your response.

The antelope, deer and elk surveys are conducted by Tetra Tech, the survey research firm that won the competitive bid to conduct these large-volume surveys on behalf of Game and Fish.
