Hunters are alerted applications for leftover deer, elk and antelope licenses must be received at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. July 20.

The second drawing will be held around July 31. Licenses remaining following the drawing will be sold “as processed” through the Cheyenne office.

Seventy-five different types of elk licenses are leftover in 63 areas. The majority of the licenses are for antlerless elk, although 10 areas are offering “any elk tags” and archery-only tags allowing bull harvest are available in 10 areas.

Twelve areas and seven nonresident regions (A, B, C, F, J, M and T) have leftover deer licenses. “Any antelope” licenses are available in 40 hunt areas. The antelope areas are predominately private land, so applicants are urged to have a place lined up to hunt before applying for a license.

Leftover reduced price doe/fawn antelope and deer, and cow/calf elk licenses are not issued in the second drawing but will be sold first-come, first-served, at license agents in or near the respective hunt areas beginning Aug. 15.

Hunters are also alerted the deadline to apply for early sandhill crane/Canada goose is Aug. 2 and fall turkey is Aug. 16.
