A survey of Montana residents is currently being conducted by researchers at Colorado State University to better understand public opinions about fish and wildlife management. The survey is part of a national effort sponsored by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.

During the next couple of months, researchers will be contacting randomly selected Montana residents by mail and requesting that they complete a short survey. While Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is not conducting this research directly, we strongly encourage residents who receive the survey to respond.

Information gathered from the survey will be made available to FWP and will help us better understand residents’ underlying views about fish and wildlife management in the state.

Public opinion is one of many important pieces of information that wildlife managers consider when making decisions about how to best manage our state’s fish and wildlife. By participating in the survey, you are not only ensuring that your voice is heard, but also that our information about public opinions is as accurate as possible.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the research team directly by emailing or calling 1-888-810-4460.
