Conservation stamp available online
by Wyoming Game & Fish
August 11, 2009
Hunters and anglers can now get their conservation stamp online through the Game and Fish Web site.
"That should be especially convenient for nonresident hunters who arrive in Wyoming late at night when most license agents are closed," said Jean Cole, License Section manager.
The $12.50-stamp is required annually for almost all resident and nonresident license holders. Daily license holders are exempt from the requirement. Hunters and anglers who hold pioneer licenses have been exempt from conservation stamp requirements for some licenses in the past. New legislation will exempt pioneer license holders from the conservation stamp requirement for all licenses effective Jan. 1, 2010.
Cole alerts potential Internet c-stamp buyers to load their printer with white paper to perform a test print prior to purchase.
Lifetime conservation stamps are also available from the Game and Fish Cheyenne Office for $180.50.

Q. Ive heard you can now buy a Cutt-Slam certificate in addition to earning it? A. Not exactly. You can now buy a "Wyoming Cutt-Slam Angler" patch without completing the Slam. The embroidered patch featuring a cutthroat trout on a baby blue background sells for $5. To earn the 18-by-24-inch color certificate, you still need to catch each of the four sub-species of cutthroat trout found in Wyoming in their native range. To order a patch or learn more about the program, go to the Game and Fish Web site at http://gf.state.wy.us or call (800) 548-9453.
