Open House to Discuss Wolves, Other Regulations

Sheridan – The Wyoming Game and Fish Department Sheridan Region is holding an open house from 3 – 5 p.m. on May 7, 2014 to gather public input on the proposed 2014 gray wolf hunting seasons, changes to license issuance and hunter safety regulations. The proposed 2014 gray wolf hunt area mortality quotas will be available on the Game and Fish website starting May 1 and will be available at the upcoming open house. Hunting season dates are proposed to be similar to 2013 hunting seasons.

The Game and Fish is proposing to extend the deadline for nonresident landowner deer and antelope applications to May 15 and the regular nonresident deer and antelope application deadline to May 31. Also being proposed is extending the deadline time of day from 5 P.M. to midnight Mountain Standard Time on the respective application deadline date. General sandhill crane licenses are also being proposed to only be available through the department’s website.

The Game and Fish is proposing to transfer the hunter safety regulation to Commission policy. The change is in keeping with the governor’s directive to reduce state regulations and will not alter the program. The crux of hunter safety language is in Wyoming statute. Interested parties are encouraged to attend the following open house:

May 7 – Open House on Gray Wolf, Licensing and Hunter Safety regulations.

Game and Fish-Sheridan Region Office, 3 - 5 p.m.

Comments on all the proposed regulations can be made at open houses, public meetings, through the WGFD website at http://wgfd.wyo.gov/web2011/HUNTING-1000179.aspx or by mailing: WGFD, Regulations, 3030 Energy Lane, Casper, WY 82604.
