CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials say fewer than 50 percent of the black bear, wild turkey and gray wolf hunting survey requests have been returned to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1f5O0Fg ) the surveys, which can be filled out online, are used to bolster the statistical information the department uses on each species and should be completed whether or not a hunter was successful.

Deer and elk surveys can be filled out www.wyhunter.org or by calling 800-216-0477.
