Annually, the Nebraska Game and Parks commission will mail out (or email) surveys to permit holders. These are sent out to holders of fur harvest permits as well as hunting, big game and waterfowl hunting permits.
The surveys are anonymous and the responses provide valuable information to our wildlife biologists. Using this information, they can set season dates, daily bag limits, and keep a handle on populations.
According to the most recent fur harvest survey, only 16% of those surveyed actually returned their survey.
As good stewards of our resources, we take the responsibility of purchasing permits to take part in these activities. We also need to take the responsibility of providing feedback to the commission on our experiences. Remember, the surveys are anonymous.
