Elk, Deer and Antelope Draw Results Available
For some hunters, the toughest part of the hunt is almost over: drawing the license. For others, the results may bring about as much disappointment as spotting a huge buck, but not getting a shot.
On July 5, the results of the 2006 resident elk, deer and antelope license drawings and the nonresident deer and antelope drawings will be available on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department Web site, reports Jean Cole, License Section manager.
Interested hunters can also check the drawing results of up to three applicants by calling (307) 777-4655 beginning July 5.
Cole alerts hunters that leftover licenses for both residents and nonresidents -- except doe/fawn deer and antelope, and cow/calf elk -- will be issued in a second drawing. The application period for the second drawing is July 10-20 and the drawing is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 1. Applications and the leftover license list will be sent with refunds and are available at license agents, Game and Fish offices and the Web site. GF Homepage.
Any licenses remaining after the second drawing will be sold “as processed” through the Game and Fish’s Cheyenne office.
Leftover doe/fawn antelope and deer, and cow/calf elk licenses will be sold first-come, first-served, at license agents in or near the respective hunt areas beginning Aug. 15. The specific agents and the number of licenses offered will be available from the Game and Fish Aug. 1.
