Wildlife Technology: Game and Fish Commission Loving Efficient Online Feedback

For the 2014-2015 regulations Arkansas Game and Fish Commission has turned to an online survey.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Game and Fish Commission has turned to technology to get feedback and says it's working better than ever.

In the past game and fish has hosted public and face-to-face meetings as well as taking faxes and phone calls to get your input on proposed hunting regulations.

For 2014-15 regulations they've turned to an online survey and it's working.

"It actually became more efficient. We weren't getting the feedback that we wanted. Many times at the meetings we had more game and fish employees there than we did hunters, fisherman and conservationists," says Keith Stephens of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.

In 10 public meetings last year 200 people showed up. This year they've had 52 hundred people voice opinions through the online survey.

You have until March 15 before commissioners begin making decisions this summer.
