Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be celebrating hunting and fishing on Sept. 29 with an event for families at the University of Wyoming football game in Laramie. Join Game and Fish in the Tailgate Zone in the Indoor Practice Field facility beginning at 3 p.m. until kickoff against the Boise State Broncos.

“We want to celebrate all the fun things Wyomingites do outdoors, especially hunting, fishing and wildlife watching,” said Rebekah Fitzgerald, Game and Fish communications and outreach supervisor. “If you’re new to hunting or fishing, look for us in our red shirts before the football game to find out how to start a new hobby.”

Game and Fish will be hosting hands-on activities to teach game-goers about Wyoming’s hunting and fishing opportunities and build their skills. Activities include casting practice, hide and fur identification, bear spray practice and more. The Kokanee salmon fish stocking truck “Redd” will be onsite. Game and Fish will be giving out hunting fishing tips and answering questions.

The football game is also the official launch of #fieldgoals, an opportunity to share outdoor snapshots with Game and Fish for a chance to be featured on the department’s social media pages.

“Watch for our #fieldgoals video at halftime featuring real photos from Wyoming outdoor enthusiasts,” said Fitzgerald. “You might be featured--or your family and friends.”
