Wyoming Nonresident Deer/Antelope Applications Due March 15th

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

With the nonresident application deadline for deer and antelope licenses coming up on March 15, the Game and Fish reminds hunters that applications must be received at the Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. on the deadline date.

Most applications are now coming in online and nearly 85 percent of nonresident hunters applied online during the recently completed elk application period. For those hunters who choose to apply through conventional mail, the Game and Fish reminds hunters that applications must be received in the Cheyenne office, not postmarked, by the March 15 deadline.

The Game and Fish encourages online applications as it eliminates the uncertainty of mailed applications being received by the deadline date. In addition it improves accuracy and applications can be processed in a more timely manner.

In addition, a hunter who may have applied for an area and then changed his mind on hunt area or license type selection can go into the Game and Fish website http://gf.state.wy.us and modify the application online up to 15 business days before the published tentative drawing date. This feature is also available for paper applications once the application data is entered into the system. This year, the last day applications can be modified is June 3.

Drawing odds for the different hunt areas for 2010 can also be found on the Game and Fish website http://gf.state.wy.us. Click on hunting, then on drawing odds. Persons with additional questions on deer and antelope hunting and the application process can call (307) 777-4600 for more information.

I already got this one taken

I already got this one taken care of but it's good to get a reminder from them. I think that Wyoming has one of the longest open application periods I have ever seen as it opens on January 1st.

The first year we went up to Wyoming I actually mailed the applications and can tell you online is by far the best and easiest way to get it done. I remember when every application in Colorado had to be mailed separately with a separate check. Since I do them for my entire family I was busy for a very long time.

I also have mine in. The guy

I also have mine in. The guy I am going with has always applied through the mail. This is the first year he has done it online, and he's as nervous as can be. We are going as a party of four, and he's afraid that he did something to mess it up, ruining all of our chances.

I guess all we can do at this point is wait and see. I'm really looking forward to this hunt.
