by Wyoming Game & Fish
December 21, 2010
Wyoming hunters and anglers are reminded that most 2010 licenses expire Friday, December 31. The 2011 hunting, fishing and trapping licenses and conservation stamps are available at local license selling agents or online at: https://gf.state.wy.us.
"There are some late season elk hunts that run into January, 2011, in which case a hunterís 2010 elk license will still be valid, but a 2011 Conservation Stamp is still required and a new Elk management Stamp is also required if hunting those Hunt Areas with elk feedgrounds," says Jackson-Pinedale Public Information Specialist, Mark Gocke. "And with some waterfowl seasons also running into January, hunters do need to get the new 2011 licenses in that case as well."
When buying your new licenses for 2011 donít forget to donate to the AccessYes program. On average, each dollar donated opens four acres of access. In 2010 anglers were able to enjoy Walk-In access to about 5,000 lake or pond acres and nearly 100 miles of streams. Hunters were provided access to 3.47 million acres of land. All dollars donated to the program go towards purchasing 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.
