Record Number of Hunting Applications Submitted
Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 12, 2017
More people than ever applied for hunting applications in Wyoming this year.
Scott Talbott, Director of the Game and Fish Department, says they were able to offer more licenses for deer and antelope for 2017 to meet the rising number of applications.
The May draw allocates licenses for resident elk as well as non-resident and resident deer and antelope. From just one year ago, there was a 4.47% increase in these license applications overall. Applications increased the most for resident cow/calf elk and non-resident and resident doe/fawn deer and antelope, all around 9%.
Officials say there are still licenses available for resident Wyoming hunters. Wyoming residents have the opportunity to buy a general elk and deer license over-the-counter, although license limits still apply.
