I recieved a letter in the mail the other day thanking me for participating in the harvest survey last year and asking if I'll do the waterfowl parts survey this year. I guess they want me to send in a wing from each duck I shoot and the tail feathers and wing tips from each goose shot. Has anyone ever done this? I remember someone last fall saying they were doing it I think. I'm just curious to who's done the survey and what they thought about it...did it become an inconvenience after awhile?

Anyways, they give you a post card where you check off how many ducks and geese you anticipate shooting this fall and the choices are 1-10, 10-20, 20+. They do this so they know how many prepaid postage envelopes they need to send you. Luckily there's a number to call, because I think I might need to ask them to send me a few more. :wink: :D :lol:

I did do the wing survey this year. They send you envelopes for the wings(also have to send tailfeathers from the geese). You submit 1 wing from each bird you personally shoot. 1 wing per envelope. The wing envelope goes into a mailing envelope. On the outside, you have to record state, county, date, and approx time of the kill. Last week I got a report on all the wings I submitted. Report includes species, sex, and age (mature/immature) of each bird submitted.

It doesn't take a lot of time and it's for a good cause. It was kind of interesting to see the mature/immature breakdown and also have a summary of the harvest for the entire season in 1 report. I had to request additional envelopes more than once and they always arrived quickly.
