CHEYENNE - The 2012 Wyoming Game and Fish Department wildlife calendar is now available featuring the images of noted Jackson photographer and WGFD information and education specialist Mark Gocke.
The calendar not only features prominent Cowboy State species from pronghorn to Snake River cutthroat trout to Canada geese, but also the vivid elements of the seasons. It may be ordered from the Game and Fish Store for $9.95 or can be obtained as part of Wyoming Wildlife Magazine's "Give a Gift, Get a Gift" promotion in which a gift subscription to Wyoming Wildlife awards the giver with a free calendar.
"This is an excellent way to get a calendar and provide a friend or relative the gift of Wyoming Wildlife," said Judith Hosafros, Wyoming Wildlife assistant editor. "The subscription is only a few dollars ($12.95) higher than the calendar and the 'Give a Gift, Get a Gift' program has been very popular in past years."
In addition to Wyoming Wildlife, Gocke's work has appeared in National Wildlife, Field and Stream, Sierra, Ranger Rick, Bugle, and most recently featured in a children's book called "Path of the Pronghorn." The photographs of the York, Neb. native have also been displayed at the U.S. Capitol.
To order a calendar, call (800) 548-9453 or stop into the department's Cheyenne office. To purchase a gift subscription to Wyoming Wildlife, call (800) 710-8345.
Hosafros said only a limited number of calendars, which also display application deadlines and the dates of other important Game and Fish events, are available and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
