Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

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 Aug. 1. Licenses remaining following the drawing will be sold “as processed” through the Cheyenne office.

Sixty-eight different types of elk licenses are leftover in 57 areas. The majority of the licenses are for antlerless elk, although seven areas are offering “any elk tags,” and archery-only tags allowing bull harvest are available in 10 areas.

Ten limited quota areas and seven nonresident regions (A, B, C, F, J, M and T) have leftover deer licenses. “Any antelope” licenses are available in 43 hunt areas. Almost all the antelope hunt areas available 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 is Aug. 1 and fall turkey is Aug. 15.
