The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is asking moose hunters to take a few minutes and participate in the harvest survey now underway for the 2014 moose season.

The department says 188 surveys were mailed, and 279 more were emailed, to both resident and nonresident hunters who held 2014 moose licenses. This is the first year the harvest surveys are being emailed.

Officials say the survey is an important tool for the Game and Fish to estimate harvest, hunter success, effort, and provides information to help wildlife managers plan the next year’s hunting season. The Game and Fish emphasizes it is still very important for all surveys to be completed even if the hunter was unsuccessful or did not go hunting.
