Laramie - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has opened a comment period and will be holding public meetings across the state to gather input on proposed changes to the following regulations:

  • Chapter 2, General Hunting Regulation
  • Chapter 28, Regulation Governing Big or Trophy Game Animal or Game Bird or Gray Wolf Damage Claims
  • Chapter 42, Mountain Lion Hunting Seasons


The Laramie Region public meeting will be held on Thursday, July 6 at 6 PM. It will take place at the Laramie Game and Fish office, located at 1212 S Adams St, Laramie. Information for the timing of other statewide public meetings can be found on the Game and Fish website.

Likely to be of broad interest are the Chapter 2 proposed changes to allow use of night vision equipment to hunt predatory species on public lands, and Chapter 42 proposed changes to mountain lion pursuit seasons and harvest limits. The proposed pursuit season occurs after mortality limits in a hunt area have been reached, and is for resident houndsmen for dog training purposes only (no harvest). The proposed pursuit season ends on the last regular hunting season date listed for the hunt area. Proposed changes to harvest limits are most pronounced in western Wyoming, with increased mortality limits aimed at reducing predation on struggling mule deer populations.

Draft regulations are available from:
  • WGFD website at https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Get-Involved/Public-Meetings
