Big game hunting application information for 2015 available on WGFD website Dec. 17

12/15/2014

CHEYENNE - Even though the big game license application period doesn’t begin until Jan.1, hunters can start planning now for 2015 hunts.

Beginning Dec. 17, big game hunting application information for both residents and nonresidents will be on the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov. A major change in this year’s application deadline extends the time period when nonresidents can apply for deer and antelope licenses. The previous deadline was March 15 and this year will be June 1 – the same as the resident deadline. The deadline has been moved to June 1 this year because the normal deadline of May 31 is on a weekend. All other application deadlines for residents and nonresidents are the same as in previous years and are as follows: Feb. 2 – Nonresident elk (extended from Jan. 31 because of weekend); March 2 – Resident and nonresident bighorn sheep, moose, mountain goat and wild bison (extended from Feb. 28 due to weekend).

Hunters are reminded that all big game applications must now be made online. License manager Jennifer Doering said the expanded application period for nonresident deer and antelope is a direct result of the online application process.

“Applying online allows us to process applications much quicker and greatly reduces the number of errors hunters made on applications,” Doering said. “It has resulted in tremendous savings in money and manpower and allows us to get ready for the drawings in a matter of days after the deadline instead of the multiple weeks of preparation when paper applications were the method for applying for licenses.”

Hunters with questions on the big game application process or needing help to apply can contact the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600. The Game and Fish will begin accepting applications for 2015 hunts beginning Jan. 1, 2015.
