(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has mailed a survey to 15,540 Indiana hunters to help improve the management of Indiana's small game and furbearer species.
By completing this 20-question survey, hunters can give opinions on their hunting experiences of quail, grouse, pheasant, squirrel, rabbit, woodcock and crow.
DNR research biologists will gather the information and summarize it to help with management practices for these species.
"Hunter surveys are essential to determining how far Indiana hunters are willing to travel to hunt, the number of days they hunted, and if they're satisfied with their hunting experiences," said Budd Veverka, farmland game research biologist with the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. "This information is integral to our management plans and strategies."
If you received a survey, be aware that the return date has been changed to June 1, 2013.
Return the survey by that date for a chance to win Indiana sporting licenses and stamp privileges worth up to $50.
