New hunting licenses for 2012
by Wyoming Game & Fish
December 18, 2011
Wyoming hunters and anglers are reminded that 2011 licenses expire Friday, Dec. 31. The 2012 hunting, fishing and trapping licenses and conservation stamps are available at local license selling agents statewide or online at: https://gf.state.wy.us.
The new 2012-2013 fishing regulations are also available at license selling agents. For regulation changes new for 2012 anglers need to check information concerning the water they intend to fish.
When buying your new licenses for 2012 donít forget to donate to the AccessYes program. In 2011 anglers were able to enjoy Walk-In access to about 5,000 lake or pond acres and more than 100 miles of streams. Hunters were provided access to 3.58 million acres of land. All dollars donated to the program go towards purchasing access. For every dollar donated to AccessYes, the access program can provide around 4.2 acres of access.
Hunters and anglers who have continuously resided in Wyoming for at least 10 years may want to consider purchasing a lifetime game bird/fish/small game license or a lifetime fishing license. Anyone can purchase a lifetime conservation stamp. A lifetime license or conservation stamp is a great gift idea for last minute shoppers with a hunter or angler on their list. Once a lifetime license is purchased it can be used even if the owner moves out of the state.
