Cheyenne - The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will gather for their next meeting at 8 a.m. May 23-24 in Casper at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1150 North Poplar St. The public is invited to attend and participate in-person or online through Zoom.

The full two-day May meeting agenda is posted on the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce website at wyomingwildlifetaskforce.com. The agenda includes registration details for virtual participation. 

The Taskforce is also collecting public input on two draft recommendations related to landowner licenses. 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.

The State of Wyoming supports the Americans with Disabilities Act. Anyone needing auxiliary aids should contact the Wyoming Game and Fish Department at 307-777-4501. Every effort will be made for reasonable accommodations.
