- Chapter 28, Big or trophy game animal or game bird or gray wolf damage claims
- Chapter 34, Depredation prevention hunting seasons
- Chapter 35, Hunting permit regulations for persons with disabilities
- Chapter 62, Regulation for aquatic invasive species
Written comments will be accepted until July 31st at 5 p.m. via public meetings or by using this mailing address: Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Regulations, 3030 Energy Lane, Casper, WY 82604. For online submissions, folks can click here.
Game and Fish director Brian Nesvik, in the 2022 Antelope, Deer, and Elk Hunting Regulations, says, “As the director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and a fellow hunter, I want to say thank you. Hunting is conservation in its most historic and pure form. Your deep appreciation for Wyoming’s wild animals and wild places is reflected in the tremendous diversity and abundance of wildlife we have in our state — both hunted and not hunted.
Nesvik continues, “Your support is incredibly important to the department, too. The majority of our funding comes from sportspeople. As conservationists, understanding these rules and holding yourself to the highest level of hunting ethics and safety benefits wildlife and all who enjoy it. You are the model for future generations of hunters who will fill your boot prints on the trails.”
Copies of proposed regulations will be made available on the Department website and at the address above in accordance with “Chapter 1 Regulation Governing Access to Public Records.”
These written comments need to be presented to the Game and Fish Commission prior to the public hearing in Buffalo, Wyoming in September of 2022.
Since Wyoming Game and Fish supports the Americans with Disabilities Act, every effort will be made to provide “reasonable accommodations,” Game and Fish states. This can be made possible by contacting the nearest Game and Fish office.
