Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will make draw results available for resident and nonresident spring turkey and nonresident elk license at 10 a.m. MST on Feb. 21. Everyone who entered the draw will be able to check their results online. Licenses will be mailed to successful applicants by March 1.

Hunters who were successful in the draw can start planning their hunt with help from the Wyoming Hunt Planner. Maps of hunt areas now include updated features such as land status, the ability to plot scouting locations, harvest odds from past years and more.

Along with reviewing maps, hunters who haven’t yet purchased a 2019 Conservation Stamp can do that online  and, if necessary, buy a special archery license. Elk hunters who are planning to hunt on the National Elk Refuge will need to apply for a National Elk Refuge Permit. In addition, people born after Jan. 1, 1966 will  need proof of hunter safety. Wyoming is hosting hunter safety classes now for those who need it.

Applicants who are unsuccessful will have the license fee applied back to the credit card they used to apply. Refunded fees should be applied 7 to 10 days business days after Feb. 21. If the credit card was a prepaid card, expired or cancelled a refund check will be mailed in the name of the applicant.

For questions about the draw, license information or how to use the online tools, contact Game and Fish at (307) 777-4600 weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MST.

Applications are still open until May 31 for resident elk and resident and nonresident deer, and antelope. The deadline for resident and nonresident moose, sheep, mountain goat and wild bison is Feb. 28. Hunters can also still apply for the Wyoming Super Tag and Super Tag Trifecta until July 1. Applications for preference points open July 1.
