Cheyenne - The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will gather for their next meeting 8 a.m. April 28 in Casper at the Clarion Inn, 123 West E St. The public is invited to attend and participate in-person or online through Zoom.

The Taskforce will continue discussions on licensing topics related to sustainably increasing resident opportunity for deer, elk and antelope hunting; private landowner matters and improving public access. The full April meeting agenda is posted on the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce website at wyomingwildlifetaskforce.com. The agenda includes registration details for virtual participation. 

The Taskforce also is collecting public input on three draft recommendations. The public can read the drafts and submit comments to the Taskforce online.  

Meetings will be recorded and available for viewing online within a week on the website. 

The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce was convened to study top-priority wildlife policy issues facing the state related to the allocation of hunting opportunity, sportsperson access and other issues. The topics will be identified by the taskforce members with input from the public for study over an 18-month period with the goal of presenting conclusions and recommendations to the Wyoming Legislature, Game and Fish Commission and Governor to support decision-making on Wyoming’s wildlife resources. The Taskforce has no rule-making authority.
