Wyoming has seasons opening as early as September 10 for rifle deer hunting and doe/fawn seasons closing as late as December.
Wyoming hosts both mule deer and whitetailed deer. Mule deer are found from high in the western mountains to the low elevation creek bottoms of eastern Wyoming. White-tails are abundant in the Black Hills of northeast Wyoming. Elsewhere they are found primarily along the bottoms of lower elevation creeks and rivers, in farm country of the eastern third of the state and the Big Horn Basin in north central Wyoming.
Generally, a hunter can use the same license to hunt either deer species. Your specific license limitation shown in the regulations will tell you what deer is legal. For example, if the regulation specifies "antlered deer," that means you can harvest only deer with visible antlers, either mule deer or white-tailed deer. Always consult the regulations for your hunt area prior to hunting.
