Cheyenne - Santa Claus and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department have a lot in common. Both wear red, look after deer and have gifts that will make anyone smile this holiday season. For the person on your list who likes to hunt, fish or enjoy wildlife, these presents will be on target.  

A Wyoming Wildlife Conservation License plate- The Wildlife Conservation License Plate is a new speciality plate for Wyoming drivers, featuring the iconic mule deer. The initial price of the plate is $180 with a $50 renewal fee each year, in addition to registration fees. The plate is available anytime — not just with renewals. 

Funds generated from the Conservation Plate will help fund overpasses, underpasses, fencing and signage to prevent vehicle/animal collisions along wildlife migration corridors. 

Resident lifetime licenses or conservation stamps - A lifetime license or stamp guarantees that your loved one will log many hours enjoying the great Wyoming outdoors while supporting conservation. These are available for residents who have lived in Wyoming for at least 10 years. A resident lifetime small game/bird license is $311. The resident lifetime fishing license is also $311. If you’re looking for a bargain, get them both, plus a lifetime conservation stamp for $681.50. 

For those who have lived in Wyoming for less than 10 years a lifetime conservation is an option, the stamp alone is $185.50. For more information and the application for purchase visit the Game and Fish website

Game and Fish Gift Shop - Come by the Cheyenne Headquarters office to browse the Game and Fish gift shop or shop online. The shelves are stocked with unique wildlife memorabilia, housewares, apparel and books. With gifts in all price ranges, you can stuff stockings with special items like jerky seasoning or Game and Fish-branded water bottles. 

Wyoming Super Tag raffle tickets- Buy a ticket —  or several —  in the name of your loved one. The Super Tag is a good gift for the hunter who dreams of big adventure, spectacular scenery and the best animals in the Cowboy State. 

Winning a Wyoming Super Tag or Super Tag Trifecta gives a hunter the opportunity to purchase one or more of Wyoming’s most popular big game and trophy game licenses. Applications are available by species with one winner selected in July for each of the ten species; trifecta winners choose any three from the list: elk, deer, antelope, bighorn sheep, black bear, mountain goat, mountain lion, gray wolf, wild bison or moose. Visit the website for full details.

Super Tag applications are $10 each, and Super Tag Trifecta applications are $30 each.  Unlimited entries are allowed until Jan. 31. The tickets must be submitted under the recipient's name on their Game and  Fish user account and cannot be transferred, which is the same as licenses. Because of that, this gift is best for people who don’t mind not being surprised on gift opening day.
