North Dakota Outdoors: Hunter surveys dial in future licensing changes

Surveys are sent out shortly after hunting seasons, but not every hunter who buys a license will receive a survey. The NDGF aims to have a random representation of the hunting experience.

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Game and Fish Department uses hunter harvest surveys to gain information to help decide future harvest regulations, such changing the number of licenses issued in future seasons.

Surveys are sent out shortly after hunting seasons, but not every hunter who buys a license will receive a survey. The NDGF aims to have a random representation of the hunting experience.

The NDGF will send out an email to a selection of hunters and will defer to a mailed survey if the hunter doesn't respond electronically.
