Sheridan Final Season Setting Meeting

Sign Up up for our newsletter

Sheridan - Season setting meetings for the 2019 fall hunting season are scheduled for mid-March in the Sheridan area. The meetings will cover season proposals for big game, wild turkey, small game and upland and migratory game birds.

Season setting meetings are held each spring to present suggested license allocations, season length changes and other proposals for the coming fall to hunters and the general public.

The first meetings will be a series of open houses held throughout the region. At these events, Game and Fish wardens and biologists will provide printed packets of information about local herd units and suggested seasons. They will also be available to visit with hunters, landowners and other participants to answer questions and listen to feedback and opinions on the proposals.

Anyone unable to attend an open house can pick up printed copies of the materials at the Game and Fish Sheridan Regional Office March 18 - 26.

A final information gathering meeting will be held at the Sheridan Regional Office on March 27. 

At the Buffalo and Kaycee open houses, Buffalo Wildlife Biologist Cheyenne Stewart will also provide an update and answer questions about the mule deer movement study initiated in mid-December to study the Upper Powder River mule deer herd. GPS collars were put on 70 adult mule deer in areas between Buffalo and Kaycee. The study will look at seasonal movements, habitat preferences and what, if any, influence chronic wasting disease might be having on the herd. This is the first large-scale deer movement study in the Sheridan Region.

If you cannot attend the meetings, written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on April 1. Comments can submitted at www.wgfd.wyo.gov or mailed to: Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Regulations, 3030 Energy Lane, Casper, WY 82604

All comments will be reviewed and seasons set by the Game and Fish Commission at their April meeting.
