Cheyenne - May 31 is an important day for hunters--it’s the deadline to submit for resident deer, elk and antelope and nonresident deer and antelope hunting applications. To help hunters submit their applications by the midnight deadline, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department regional offices and Cheyenne headquarters will stay open late on May 31 until 7 p.m. for in-person application assistance.

Anyone can stop into a Game and Fish office to submit their hunting applications. Each office has computer kiosks available for the public to use. These computers are always available during business hours throughout the year.

While regional offices will be open late, Jennifer Doering, Game and Fish license section manager, encourages hunters not to wait until the last minute to apply. “Submit your application early and have the peace of mind that you’re done before the deadline.”

Doering also reminds hunters with questions to call early; the Game and Fish sportsperson call center gets busy on the deadline day. That number is (307) 777-4600, and is open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m MST.

All hunting applications must be submitted online. See the Wyoming Hunt Planner for season dates, drawing odds, and maps to help with applications.
