Resident and nonresident hunters interested in applying for moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat licenses need to have their applications in to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. Feb. 29. The deadline to apply for the wild bison priority list is also Feb. 29.

Applications can be made either on line through the Game and Fish Web site gf.state.wy.us or through regular mail as long as they arrive at the Cheyenne office by the prescribed deadline date. Applications are also available on line or by calling (307) 777-4600. For hunters interested only in purchasing a preference point, the application period is July 1 through Sept. 30.

Hunters interested in applying for wild bison will note that the Feb. 29 deadline is for a drawing to be placed on a priority list. Hunters may apply to be placed on priority lists for either male or female wild bison. When bison are available in the hunt area, persons with the lowest numbers on the list are notified and then given an opportunity to purchase a license. If the person declines, the next person on the list is notified. Application fee to be placed on the priority list is $11 resident and $20 for nonresidents. As mentioned, the bison hunt is dependent on bison moving into the hunt area.
