Q. Does Wyoming have an early archery season for the spring black bear and turkey hunts?
A. Yes – in most hunt areas for bear—no for turkey. Archery seasons for black bear vary with the hunt area with most opening April 15, and four areas opening May 1. There are also several areas closed to archery hunting. Archers are advised to check the black bear regulations for the season in the area they wish to hunt. While there is no special archery season for wild turkey, archery equipment can be used during the regular firearm season.
