Throughout February, California's Department of Fish and Game (DFG) will be conducting a public opinion survey on pintail harvest regulations.
The DFG is requesting all waterfowl hunters fill out a very simple online poll as DFG biologists consider several options for future pintail bag limits and season lengths. The questions prompt hunters to provide opinions on the trade-offs between daily bag limits, length of the pintail season and stability of hunting regulations The poll consists of a few multiple choice questions and will only take minutes to fill out online.
The pintail survey opinion poll is scheduled to close at the end of February, giving DFG biologists time to review results in advance of regulation meetings with waterfowl biologists from other states and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in March. DFG intends to post the results of the survey on its Waterfowl Program Web page.
