Cody - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department invites the public to an open house with commissioners and department staff from 5:30- 7 p.m. Nov. 19 in Powell at the Park County Fairgrounds in Heart Mountain Hall. During the open house, lifetime licenses for game bird/small game/fishing/conservation stamp donated by local businesses and individuals will be raffled off to youth in attendance. 

The event’s sponsors, Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Wyoming Wildlife Federation and the Yellowstone Chapter of Muley Fanatics, will provide refreshments and chances to win several Wyoming wildlife conservation license plates. 

Cody Regional Wildlife Supervisor Dan Smith said this is a great opportunity to meet Game and Fish Commissioners and local staff in an informal setting.  “Anyone interested is welcome,” Smith said.   “Families are encouraged to attend as there will be activities for kids and a chance for youth to win a lifetime license.  Thanks to our sponsors, adults will have a chance to win a wildlife conservation license plate.  Proceeds from sales and donations of licenses plates help fund initiatives to prevent vehicle/animal collisions along wildlife migration corridors.”

The lifetime licenses that will be given away at the event have been donated by local businesses and individuals.  “Each lifetime license donated is valued at $681.50 and includes a lifetime conservation stamp,” Smith said.  “It’s incredible how the local community has stepped up to donate multiple licenses that affords the winner the opportunity to fish, hunt small game and hunt game birds for their entire lifetime.”   

Youth under the age of 18 who meet residency requirements and are at least ten years of age will have the opportunity to win the lifetime small game, bird and fishing licenses. Youth must be present at the time of the drawing to win.  To win wildlife conservation license plates, adults must have a vehicle currently registered in Wyoming or a vehicle they intend to register in Wyoming.  Winners will be responsible for annual renewal fees associated with the plate.
