Cheyenne - The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will gather for their next meeting 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 19 in Casper. The meeting will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1150 North Poplar St. The public is invited to attend and participate in-person or online through Zoom.

The Taskforce will continue discussions on policies that might sustainably increase resident sportsperson opportunities for the “big 5” species — moose, sheep, goat, bison and grizzly bear. Other topics for the meeting include sustainably increasing resident opportunity for deer, elk and antelope hunting as well as private landowner matters. The public can submit comments to the Taskforce online and will have several chances to speak to the Taskforce during the meeting.

The July 19 meeting agenda is available on the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce website at wyomingwildlifetaskforce.com, along with other supporting documents. The agenda includes registration details for virtual participation. 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.
