This survey will help us gather provincewide data and information on the perspectives, hunting styles and economic contributions of wild turkey hunters in Ontario.

This voluntary survey differs from the mandatory hunter reporting requirement that is associated with a turkey tag.

By completing this survey, you will be giving us information on your wild turkey hunting activity in 2021, including:

  • hunting activity, such as how and where you hunted
  • your satisfaction with turkey hunting
  • the importance of turkey hunting to you
  • how much money you spent to prepare for and hunt wild turkey in Ontario

This survey does not mean that we are planning any further changes to wild turkey hunting regulations at this time. However, responses may help inform future proposed changes and can help us better understand the contributions that hunters make to Ontario’s economy.

Who can take the survey

Only people who received a survey invitation by mail are allowed to complete this survey.

The survey invitation includes a cover letter with a passcode. Make sure you have your passcode ready because you will need it to access the survey.

You can complete the survey even if you did not hunt for wild turkey in 2021.

Next steps

The survey will be open from January 3, 2022 until March 16, 2022.

We will analyze the results and create a report which we will share at a later date.
