Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission’s next meeting is Nov. 13-14 in Casper. The meeting will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1150 North Poplar Street. The public is invited to attend and provide input on important topics.

The Commission will be asked to vote on a change to Chapter 44, Regulation for Issuance of Licenses, Permits, Stamps, Tags, Preference Points and Competitive Raffle Chances that would create 12-month licenses for some species such as fishing, small game, game birds as well as conservation stamps. This would be a change from calendar year licenses, which are sold now. Other voting topics include approving the Statewide Mule Deer Initiative Program’s habitat and migration project applications and the Wyoming Black-footed Ferret Management Plan.

The Commission will also hear informational presentations and updates on the joint fisheries research between Game and Fish and the University of Wyoming, Wyoming Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit; recommendations related to potential future regulation changes for new and emerging technologies used in hunting and recent public feedback; mule deer migration science; the results of a study that monitored mule deer response on winter range to energy development over a 17-year period by Western EcoSystems Technology, Inc. Mule Deer and Energy Development; and information on the history of the Whiskey Mountain Bighorn Sheep herd and the results of the public collaboration initiative process.

In-person public comment opportunities are available during each specific agenda item and on any matter the public can speak to the Commission at the end of the day; an agenda can be found on the Commission webpage. The meeting will be live-streamed on the Internet. Learn more and watch here.

On Nov. 13 the Muley Fanatic Foundation will host an open house beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the Commission and Game and Fish staff at the Casper Regional Office, 3030 Energy Lane. The public, especially youth guests, are encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided.
