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.



There are three ways to complete your hunter harvest survey(s):

Sign on to your HAL account at saskatchewanlicences.active.com and select the 'Hunter Harvest Surveys' tab on the left-hand side of the page;

Visit a Ministry of Environment office; or

Call Active Network at 1-888-773-8450.
