A Monte Carlo method has been developed for the study of electron transport properties in ZnO taking into account the electron-plasmon scattering effect. It is shown that electron-plasmon scattering affects substantially the hot-electron energy distribution function and transport properties in bulk ZnO. The following  scattering mechanisims, i.e, impurity, polar optical phonon, acoustic phonon, piezoelectric are also included in the calculation. Ionized impurity scattering has been treated beyound the Born approximation using the phase-shift analysis
