CHEYENNE - With two application deadlines now past, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department reports that the online only application process is going very well.
For those who would like to apply, but may not have access to a computer or need assistance in applying, the Game and Fish has computer stations at each of its regional offices and the Cheyenne headquarters building. In addition,hunters who have questions about applying online or need assistance can call the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600.
Prior to this year, hunters had the option of submitting paper applications or applying online to be included in drawings for licenses. Beginning 2014 the Game and Fish switched to a total online application process. “Most people were applying online anyway,” said license section manager Jennifer Doering. “Last year 96 percent of all applications we received were online.”
Doering said the online application process has proven to be much more efficient and accurate and is easier for hunters to ensure their applications are received in advance of the deadline date. “It has contributed to a substantial cost savings over the old process,” Doering said.
To apply online hunters can go into the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov. In addition to application information, hunters can find drawing odds, harvest reports from previous years along with hunt area maps.
