ASK GAME & FISH

Great question!  Access Yes is the funding mechanism for public hunting and fishing easements known as Walk-in Areas, Hunter Management Areas and other department public access areas.  Access Yes funds directly pay for access easements, not funding operating expenses of the department access programs.  Walk-In Areas and Hunter Management Areas funded by Access Yes provide hunting opportunities for big game, small game, upland game bird species and waterfowl.  They also provide fishing opportunities throughout the state.   

With these programs, every $1 donated to Access Yes, provides about 3.5 acres for public access for a year.  There are several ways to donate, but giving whenever you purchase a license, either online or from a license selling agent is the most common.  Other ways include a direct donation which can be made at any Regional Office or they can be mailed to the Headquarters Office in Cheyenne (just make sure to identify the funds are for Access Yes use only).   For more information please visit our public access page.
