Stay Safe While Hunting This Season
Written by wendycorr on August 27, 2019
When fall hits, hunters can get caught up anticipating their season. But, before putting boots on the ground, there are a few things that the Wyoming Game and Fish Department wants to make sure that hunters have to stay safe in the field.
Scott Edberg, Wyoming Game and Fish deputy chief game warden, says hunters need to make sure they have the current, correct and required licenses, stamps and permits, safety gear and proof of hunter education.
Edberg says that depending on the game they are pursuing and method, hunters may need a variety of additional stamps and permits. If buying online, hunters need to print their stamps and permits for proof afield – stamps will not be mailed.
Big and trophy game hunters must wear in a visible manner one exterior garment of either fluorescent orange or pink while hunting during the regular hunting season, regardless of the type of weapon they choose to use.
And anyone born on or after January 1, 1966, must have hunter education to hunt in Wyoming, unless accompanied by a registered mentor. Hunters must have their hunter safety card or certificate while in the field.
