Game and Fish asks hunters, anglers to participate in economic impact survey

Mar. 5—BISMARCK — The North Dakota Game and Fish Department is collaborating with North Dakota State University on a statewide survey aimed at understanding the economic impact of hunting and fishing activities in the state. The survey will be distributed via email to a random sample of hunters and anglers beginning Monday, March 11, the department said in a news release.

Participants will be asked to provide details on their expenditures related to equipment purchases, vehicles, travel, accommodations and other associated costs incurred during hunting and fishing trips. By conducting this survey, the Game and Fish Department intends to develop a comprehensive understanding of the financial contributions made by hunters and anglers to North Dakota's economy.

Game and Fish encourages hunters and anglers selected for the survey to participate so their contributions are accurately reflected in important economic data used to inform hunting and fishing policies in the state.
