Hunter Harvest Survey

Hunter Harvest Surveys are an important component of managing game in Saskatchewan and provide valuable information for quota and season setting for the upcoming year.

The Hunter Harvest Survey is now incorporated into HAL, the Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence System. Every hunter who purchases a licence for which a Hunter Harvest Survey is being conducted, will have the opportunity to fill out a survey. This data is provided to the ministry’s wildlife biologists in advance of quota setting for the following year and allows them to evaluate recent changes in management strategy and identify areas where different management strategies may be warranted. The more surveys completed, the more thorough this evaluation can be.

Hunters who provide an email address on their HAL profile will be notified when the survey is available and reminded of pending surveys that have not been completed. Surveys can be completed online in the HAL account or may be completed in person at ministry offices. The ministry encourages all hunters who receive the survey to respond. Completed surveys are valuable even if you were unable to hunt or did not harvest an animal with your licence or seal.

As an added incentive, all hunters who complete their hunter harvest surveys will be put in a draw for one of three $100 gift certificates to a sporting goods store of their choice or one of three $100 gift certificates courtesy of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation. 

The winners of this draw for the 2015 hunting season were:

  • Robert Hansen (Redvers, SK)
  • Michael Kozey (Macklin, SK)
  • Kevin Graves (Prince Albert, SK)
  • Dwayne Skurat (Canora, SK)
  • Ian Twidale (Meadow Lake, SK)
  • Michael Stirret (Saskatoon, SK)
