For those who would like to attend in person, the meeting will be held at the Jeffrey Memorial Community Center, 315 West Pine Street.

The Commission will hear informational presentations and updates on several items including wildlife crossing projects; large carnivore monitoring research and conflicts; Mule Deer Initiative projects; an overview of various trapping issues, the antelope limited quota draw, the new Cody Regional Office construction and an update from the WYldlife Fund.  

The Commission will be asked to vote to approve the department’s Chronic Wasting Disease Management Plan, the result of a collaborative CWD working group. Additionally, Game and Fish will seek approval for the fiscal year 2021 budget, Chap. 47 - Gray Wolf Hunting Season, the special allocation of antelope licenses and the agency’s Wolverine Management Plan.

The department will also present annual employee recognition awards for 2019.
