CHEYENNE - Wyoming ranchers and farmers are reminded March 1 is the deadline to send in landowner coupons from the past hunting season. The coupons and corresponding affidavit must be submitted to the local game warden or Game and Fish office by that date.
Wyoming landowners receive $16 for each elk, deer, or antelope harvested on their land. The coupons are included on each license. The landowner coupon program was established by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission in 1934 to partially compensate landowners for forage consumed by big game on their property. The coupon program was passed into state law by the Wyoming Legislature in 1939.
