The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, at the Cody Regional Office, 2 Tilden Trail. During the meeting, wildlife managers will present hunting season proposals for local black bear hunt areas.

Black bear hunting seasons are reviewed on a three-year basis. A full listing of proposed changes to black bear hunting seasons is available at wgfd.wyo.gov. Comments on the proposed regulation can be made online, submitted in writing at the public meeting, or by mailing: WGFD, Regulations, 3030 Energy Lane, Casper, WY, 82604.

Some of the updated draft regulations include, “All black bear baits placed at a registered bait site shall be enclosed in a container. Bait containers shall be rigid and constructed,” and ” ‘Bait Location’ means the GPS location of a bait placed within a registered bait site,” for example.

The public comment period for Chapter 3 closes at 5 p.m. on Dec. 14. All comments received during the comment period will be presented to the Game and Fish Commission prior to their Jan. 11-12, 2023 meeting in Cheyenne.
