Holiday shopping? Five perfect gifts from Game and Fish
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. Drivers who have the plate join an exclusive club, too, with access to great discounts from Wyoming businesses.  

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.

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 July 1, 2021. The tickets must be submitted under the recipient's name and cannot be transferred, which is the same as licenses. So, ask for your recipient’s SPID to purchase this gift.
