Cody - UPDATE:  The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is following federal and state guidance on gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the safety of the public and Game and Fish employees, in-person season setting meetings have been canceled statewide and will move to an online forum.  Recorded presentations and online commenting will be available by visiting the Game and Fish website and clicking the “Get Involved” tab.   Click here for more information. 

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will conduct six open-house style meetings throughout the Bighorn Basin with one final meeting in Worland to discuss 2020 hunting season proposals for game birds and big game.

During the open houses, Game and Fish personnel will be available to discuss proposed changes to 2020 hunting seasons for local hunt areas. A final meeting, during which statewide seasons may be discussed, will be held from 6-8 p.m. March 31 at the Washakie County Fairgrounds in Worland.   

Public input is valued and an important part of the season setting process. “We encourage the public to take this opportunity to attend a local meeting,” said Corey Class, wildlife management coordinator for the Cody area. “To accommodate those who can’t attend a meeting in-person, online commenting forms and other related information will be posted under the Get Involved tab at wgfd.wyo.gov.”
