2018 Migratory Game Bird Harvest Survey

 

If you purchased a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit in 2018, you may find in the mail a request to participate in the Harvest Questionnaire Survey. Hunters are encouraged to respond, even if you did not hunt this year, to questions about their migratory game bird hunting experience during the 2018-2019 season.

The Harvest Questionnaire Survey is sent in the fall to approximately 45,000 randomly chosen hunters. It is used mainly to estimate the harvest of migratory game birds and hunting activity in Canada. A smaller group of hunters participate in the Species Composition Survey (or Wing and Tail Survey). Data from this survey are used, in combination with Harvest Questionnaire Survey data, to estimate the numbers that are hunted of each species of waterfowl and other game bird species, as well as the age and sex composition of the harvest.
