Game and Fish Meeting in Cody Next Week
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 5, 2018
The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will be meeting in Cody next week, and many decisions will be made that will affect the entire state.
The Commission’s meeting at the Holiday Inn March 14th and 15th is open to the public, who are invited to provide input on the agenda items and other issues. Cody Regional Wildlife Supervisor Dan Smith said this is a great opportunity to meet Game and Fish Commissioners and local staff in an informal setting.
Topics the Commission will address at this meeting include the election of a new commission president and vice president and an informational presentation on preference points options for nonresidents. The Commission will also hear updates on the 2018 legislative session, the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout Collaborative Working Group, the public engagement and strategic planning process, and the implementation of Chapter 60–the regulations that allow for certified game bird farm licensees to collect sage-grouse eggs from the wild and raise them.
Game and Fish is also hosting a public open house with commissioners and department staff beginning at 5:30 p.m. on March 14 at the Holiday Inn. Refreshments will be served and youth are encouraged to attend as there will be four lifetime licenses raffled for youth. Smith says that each lifetime license donated is valued at over $680 and includes a lifetime conservation stamp.
