Hunting Wolves in Wyoming the Discussion at Upcoming Meetings

Hunting Wolves in Wyoming the Discussion at Upcoming Meetings

5/12/2017 5:00:00 AM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, Livestock

Gray wolves were recently returned to state management, and the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) is again leading these efforts. As was the case in 2012-13 when WGFD led management, the department is proposing gray wolf hunting seasons within the Trophy Game Management Area. 

 

WGFD is holding public meetings on the proposed 2017 gray wolf hunting seasons and has opened a comment period to gather public input. This timing allows for the final proposal to go to the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission at its regularly scheduled July meeting. 

 

“We have developed a conservative hunting season framework in the Trophy Game Area for the public to consider and provide comments. Our track record in 2012-13 shows that this approach will ensure we maintain a recovered population of wolves while providing opportunity for those who want to hunt gray wolves,” said Doug Brimeyer, deputy chief of the WGFD’s wildlife division. 

 

All interested parties are encouraged to attend one of the public meetings to be held across the state discussing these regulation proposals. Meetings will be held on May 17 in Green River, May 22 in Jackson, May 23 in Cody, May 23 in Sheridan and Sundance, May 24 in Laramie, May 25 in Casper and Lander and June 1 in Pinedale.
