Game and Fish would like to hear your thoughts on recent budget discussions

CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is looking for feedback from the public regarding budget cuts the department will be implementing in coming years.

Specifically in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 which is now underway, the WGFD will be reducing expenditures by 4.6 million dollars in areas of habitat improvement, acquisition of lands for hunting and fishing access and habitat protection,fish stocking, WGFD publications, and education programs.

WGFD will continue to work with the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission to seek fiscal efficiencies in programs such as bird farms, fish hatcheries, elk feedgrounds, Wyoming Wildlife magazine and conduct an evaluation of department-provided housing such as game warden stations and fish hatchery stations.

WGFD is welcoming comments on these cuts and would like to know individual perceptions on how these reductions will affect hunters and anglers and those who participate in outdoor activities. Submit comments via the WGFD website (wgfd.wyo.gov), through 5 p.m. (MDT) Tuesday, August 27. A listing of current and proposed budget cuts is on the WGFD website.
