The 2005 hunting process has kicked off. Application periods have begun for many species.

All bison and limited quota spring turkey hunters and nonresident elk hunters are alerted their 2005 applications must be received at the Game and Fish Department’s Cheyenne Office by 5 p.m. Jan. 31.

The deadline for both resident and nonresident moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat applications is Feb. 28 and nonresident deer and antelope is March 15.

The G&F urges hunters to apply early in the application period due to the potential of winter storms or other factors that could delay delivery.

Nonresident applications are available by calling the G&F at (307) 777-4600. Resident applications can be picked up at license agents and G&F offices. All applications are also available from the G&F’s Web site at

Anyone with questions about the application periods or licenses is urged to call the G&F at (800) 842-1934 or (307) 777-4600 outside Wyoming.
