Cheyenne -
Leftover full-price licenses will be sold beginning July 8 on a first-come, first-serve basis. Following the June drawing there are 1,818 elk, 1,178 deer and 4,420 antelope licenses remaining. Leftover reduced price licenses will be sold beginning July 15 and include 10,220 cow/calf elk licenses, 4,876 doe/fawn deer licenses and 5,063 licenses for doe/fawn antelope. Licenses are available to both residents and nonresidents. Licenses will be sold via the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov. The website also has a listing of areas where licenses are remaining as well as instructions for applying for licenses online.

Access in areas with remaining licenses is a mixture of public and private lands. The majority of remaining antelope and deer licenses are for hunt areas where public access is limited Some of the full-price elk licenses are for hunt areas within national forest lands and most of the remaining licenses are for antlerless elk only. However, remaining elk licenses also include a few areas with archery only licenses and a handful of licenses that allow the taking of either antlered or antlerless elk.

Some areas have limited access provided through the Game and Fish Walk-In Area and Hunter Management programs. Hunters are urged to research areas with leftover licenses, and where necessary, obtain permission to hunt from landowners before applying.

Hunters who have questions on hunt areas and applying for licenses can contact the Game and Fish at (307) 777-4600.
