Hunting seasons draw near; Elk, deer and antelope licenses still available
by Wyoming Game and Fish Department
September 19, 2011
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reports that hunters who did not get in on the drawings this year may still have an opportunity to hunt as a number of hunt areas still have big game licenses remaining. Licenses are available for both residents and nonresidents.
Many hunt areas have had their quotas filled, but licenses are still available in a number of antelope areas and nonresident deer regions. The antelope licenses are located mostly on private lands but some of the areas have access through the Wyoming Game and Fish Departmentís Walk-In program. Many of the deer licenses remaining are for areas with good national forest and walk-in area access as well as private lands. Most of the elk licenses remaining are for antlerless elk only. Hunters are urged to research access in areas with leftover licenses, and where necessary, obtain permission to hunt from landowners before purchasing.
Hunters have the option of purchasing the licenses via their home computers, from Wyoming Game and Fish Department regional offices, or by going to license agents that are on the automated computer system.
A listing of agents on the automated system can be found on the Game and Fish website http://gf.state.wy.us. The website also has a listing of areas where licenses are remaining as well as instructions for purchasing licenses online. Licenses will continue to be sold in each hunt area until quotas are reached.
Hunters who have questions on hunt areas and applying for licenses can contact the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600.
