Montana Annual Game Harvest Survey Underway
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' annual game harvest survey will begin Dec. 1 and continue into mid-March of next year. FWP wildlife managers use the information collected during the survey to estimate the annual wild game harvest and to recommend quotas for upcoming hunting seasons.
FWP research specialist Candy Hinz said that about 80,000 Montana households are generally contacted over the course of the survey. Survey interviewers collect information on big and small game -- including deer, elk, antelope, moose, turkey and upland game birds.
This year the survey calls will be made from calling centers in Bozeman and Helena. The simple telephone survey generally takes about five minutes.
