A Reminder from ESRD - posted: 2013-01-08

Dear Fellow Hunter:

Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development has conducted Game Harvest Surveys since 1986 and the information you provide is an important component of managing hunting in Alberta.  We continue to improve our methods of collecting game harvest survey information and ask you to assist us through this online survey regarding your 2012 big game and game bird hunting season. 

This survey consists of a few short questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete.  Prior to commencing the survey, please ensure you know what Wildlife Management Units you hunted in during the 2012 hunting season. 

Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development have commissioned IBM Global Business Services to conduct this survey on our behalf. Please be assured that all responses will be treated in confidence and individual harvest results will not be disclosed.

While participation is voluntary, your feedback would be extremely valuable. The survey can be accessed through this URL:

We ask that you complete the survey by January 31, 2013.

If you have purchased multiple licences you will be asked to complete a survey for each licence purchased. Please note that you may not be surveyed for all licenses that you've purchased.  Questions relate to all licences associated with your email address provided when you registered with the Alberta RELM website.  The list may include licences for other hunters if your email address was used on their behalf.  We understand that you personally may not have hunted under each of these licences but ask that you answer each survey you have knowledge to do so.

Elk Licences are not included in this initial survey.  Holders of these licences will be contacted through a separate online web survey following closure of the majority of these seasons, after January 21, 2013.

If you have any questions about the survey, please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions section.  If your questions are not addressed, please contact us by email at ahsurvey@ca.ibm.com or you can contact the Wildlife Management Branch at (780) 427-5185.

Thank you for your participation.
