June 22, 2015
The 2015 drawings for resident elk as well as for resident and nonresident deer and antelope licenses are now in the books. Hunters can check their results on the Wyoming Game and Fish Departmentís website or by calling (307) 777-4600.
Refund warrants for those unsuccessful in the drawings will be mailed in the next several weeks followed by the licenses mailings for those who were successful in the drawings.
As is usually the case, a number of areas have licenses remaining. A total of 4,420 full price antelope licenses are available along with 5,063 reduced price doe/fawn antelope licenses. For deer, 1,178 full price licenses are available and 4,876 doe fawn licenses. Elk hunters who would still like a license should note that 1,818 full price licenses are available as well as 10,220 cow/calf licenses.
A listing of the areas with licenses remaining for each species is found on the Game and Fish website. Hunters can purchase full-price leftover licenses via home computer, automated license agents, or at Game and Fish regional offices beginning at 8 a.m. on July 8. Reduced-price licenses for cow/calf elk and doe/fawn antelope and deer will be available a week later on July 15.
Some of the areas for deer and elk have reasonable public access either through public federal and state lands or the Game and Fish hunter management and walk-in area programs. Most of the antelope licenses remaining are in hunt areas that are predominantly private lands. Hunters are advised to obtain permission from landowners before buying licenses in private land areas.
Hunters who have questions on applying for leftover licenses or public access in the different hunt areas can contact the Game and Fish at (307) 777-4600.
