ASK GAME & FISH

"Matt, what is Access Yes?"

Access Yes is a Wyoming Game and Fish program that works with landowners to provide free hunting and fishing opportunities on private and inaccessible public lands, previously known as  Private Lands  Public Wildlife (PLPW). Access Yes is comprised of Hunter Management Areas (HMAs), Walk-In Hunting Areas (WIHAs), Walk-In Fishing Areas (WIFAs), and the Hunter/Landowner Assistance Program. Access Yes is supported by hunter and angler donations. For every $1 donated to Access Yes, nearly 3.5 acres of access, totaling nearly 2.8 million private acres, is gained for hunting and fishing opportunities. When we each give a little, we all gain a lot. Please consider donating at least $1 with each license or stamp you purchase.

Other forms of revenue for Access Yes are generated from the sale of lifetime and annual conservation stamps, donations from organization, state wildlife restitution amounts from court-imposed sentencing  of convicted wildlife violators, and interest.

Access Yes funds can only be used for access payments. For more information about Access Yes, please visit our website or give us a call at 307-777-4600.
