Cheyenne - For the fourth year, Governor Mark Gordon is donating a wild bison license to support Wyoming wildlife conservation. The license will be issued through a random raffle open only to Wyoming residents. 

“The bison is a stately symbol of Wyoming and a fitting hunt to raise money for conservation,” Gordon said. “I am pleased to once again offer this opportunity to residents who care so deeply for wildlife.”

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website by June 15. There is a limit of one ticket per person. The raffle winner will receive a 2022 wild bison license, but must still purchase any additional stamps and applicable licenses. Proceeds from the raffle sales will go to the Wyoming Governor’s Big Game License Coalition and will help support efforts to sustain Wyoming’s wildlife.

Only Wyoming residents are able to purchase a raffle ticket and must be eligible to hunt big game in Wyoming. Hunters must be at least 14 years of age by the beginning of hunting season and meet hunter education requirements. The wild bison license is non-transferable. Hopeful hunters should review the bison hunt areas on the Game and Fish website.

The winner will be announced on June 21.
