Big Game Harvest Survey

Big Game Harvest Survey

​Colorado Parks and Wildlife will begin its annual big game harvest surveys​ mid October. Each year from October through mid-February the CPW contracts with an outside firm to collect hunt and harvest ​information from deer, elk and pronghorn hunters. Individual hunters are asked a series of questions related to their experience.

Not all hunters are eligible to take the survey. Only those hunters who have been randomly selected and notified by the CPW are eligible.​
