CHEYENNE - The 2014 drawings for resident elk and resident and nonresident deer and antelope licenses are now in the books and hunters can check their results on the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov or by calling (307) 777-4600.
Refund warrants for those unsuccessful in the drawings will be mailed in the next several weeks followed by the licenses mailings for those who were successful in the drawings.
As is usually the case, a number of areas have licenses remaining. A total of 5,886 full price antelope licenses are available along with 6,504 reduced price doe/fawn antelope licenses. For deer, 1,615 full price licenses are available and more than 4,820 doe fawn licenses. Elk hunters who would still like a license should note that 2,855 full price licenses are available as well as nearly 12,000 cow/calf licenses.
A listing of the areas with licenses remaining for each species is found on the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov. Hunters can purchase full-price leftover licenses via home computer, automated license agents, or at Game and Fish regional offices beginning at 8 a.m. on July 10. Reduced-price licenses for cow/calf elk and doe/fawn antelope and deer will be available a week later on July 17.
Some of the areas have reasonable public access either through public federal and state lands or the Game and Fish hunter management and walk-in area programs. There are also many licenses remaining in hunt areas that are predominantly private lands where public access is difficult. Hunters are advised to obtain permission from landowners before obtaining licenses in private land areas.
Hunters who have questions on applying for leftover licenses or public access in the different hunt areas can contact the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600.
