Setting hunting seasons for wolves and sage grouse for the coming fall will be the focus of the April 25-26 Wyoming Game and Fish Commission meeting in Casper. Seasons and license quotas for all big game species including wild bison will be established. In addition, the commission will set seasons for upland and early migratory birds and small game as well as turkey seasons for the fall 2012 and spring 2013 hunts.
In addition, the commission will hear about the Game and Fish Department’s financial condition and will be asked to vote to approve the proposed Fiscal Year 2013 budget. The commission will also receive an update on the Aquatic Invasive Species program, and presentations on conservation easements in Fremont, Hot Springs, Johnson, Lincoln, and Carbon counties.
The Game and Fish reminds the public that the venue for the meeting has been changed to the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Bldg., 2211 King Blvd. in Casper. The meeting was originally scheduled to be held at the Casper Regional Game and Fish office.
