CHEYENNE - Wyoming resident and nonresident big game hunters are reminded that less than a week remains to submit applications for limited quota deer, and antelope licenses for the 2015 hunting seasons.
The application deadline is June 1. The resident deadline for limited quota elk is also June 1. The nonresident application period for elk was the month of January. The June 1 deadline for nonresident deer and antelope is a major change in this year’s application deadline which has been March 15 for many years. The nonresident June 1 deer and antelope deadline is the same as the resident deadline and has been moved to June 1 this year because the normal deadline of May 31 is on a weekend.
This is the second year when all big game applications have been online only. For those who would like to apply, but may not have access to a computer or need assistance in applying, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has computer stations at each of its regional offices and at the Cheyenne Headquarters building. In addition, hunters who have questions about applying online or need assistance can call the Game and Fish at 307-777-4600.
Hunters can research the different hunt areas on the Game and Fish website. In addition to completing hunting applications, hunters who go into the Game and Fish website wgfd.wyo.gov can find information on drawing odds, harvest from previous years, seasons, license quotas and hunt area maps.
