Wyoming Moose, Mtn. Goat and Bighorn Sheep Apps Due - Feb. 28th
Resident and nonresident hunters are reminded that the deadline to apply for moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat licenses is the end of February. To be entered in the drawing, applications must be received at Cheyenne Game and Fish Headquarters by 5 p.m. on Feb. 28.
Hunters can apply online through the Game and Fish website http://gf.state.wy.us or through conventional mail. Application booklets are available at Game and Fish offices and license agents or by calling (307) 777-4600.
Drawing odds vary depending on species and hunt area. Preference points have been available for both moose and bighorn sheep for 16 years and 75 percent of the quotas for each species are issued in the preference point drawing. The remaining 25 percent is issued in a random drawing without regard for preference point totals. Preference points are not available for mountain goat licenses, but goat licenses are limited to one in a lifetime.
Hunters can research drawing odds from previous years for the various species and hunt areas on the Game and Fish website http://gf.state.wy.us/ Hunters who choose not to apply this year can still purchase a preference point online or through the mail between July 1-Sept.30.
