Cheyenne - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department comment period is still open for public input on many Wyoming Game and Fish Commission regulations. The deadline to submit comments is 5 p.m. June 17. Written comments shall be presented to the Game and Fish Commission prior to the public hearing at their July 18-19, 2019 meeting in Rock Springs.

Chapter 44, the regulation for Issuance of Licenses, Permits, Stamps, Tags, Preference Points and Competitive Raffle Chances has several proposals to change application dates for:

  • Springer and Glendo Pheasant permits, fall turkey and limited-quota sandhill crane — a proposed application period from the beginning of April to May 31 .
  • Wild Bison — a proposed application period for the month of March.
If approved, application date changes would go into effect for the 2020 season.
