Wyoming COVID-19 Information
Below is Information from Wyoming Game and Fish Department, wgfd.wyo.gov, concerning upcoming hunting seasons and deadlines. For more information on this, please visit the Wyoming Game and Fish Department online, or by calling 307-777-4600.
Dear hunters and anglers-
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department understands many of you are unable to travel to Wyoming for spring hunting and fishing because of stay-at-home orders in your home state and the recent 14-day quarantine directive for people entering Wyoming through the end of April. Due to this directive, we ask nonresidents to stay home at this time, unless you can observe the quarantine. These are unprecedented times with rapid changes - but we are here to help.
If you’ve bought a spring bear or turkey license that you are unable to use, we can help. Call us at (307) 777- 4600 between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. MDT Monday - Friday.
We have no plans to cancel any seasons. However, we understand some of you may want to withdraw hunting applications you’ve already submitted. The deadlines to withdraw are:
- Moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goat, bison: April 15
- Elk: May 8
- Deer and pronghorn: June 1
Applications for fall hunts remain open and June 1 is the deadline to apply for:
- Sandhill crane
- Fall turkey
- Springer and Glendo special pheasant hunts
Annual fishing licenses are valid for 12-months from the purchase date to maximize your opportunity. If you’ve bought a fishing license, know the fish will be waiting for you and growing big. We continue to stock Wyoming’s waters with over 20 species of fish.
Stay safe, and we’ll see you soon.
