Landowners Recognized for Providing Hunters and Anglers Access

10/20/2014

CHEYENNE - Landowners from Cokeville, Douglas, Medicine Bow and Worland are recipients of this year’s Access Recognition Program. The program honors landowners who provide access to or through their lands to hunters and anglers.

Each year, the Wyoming Board of Agriculture, Game and Fish Commission, and Wyoming Wildlife – The Foundation, partner together to recognize four landowners who contribute in a significant fashion to the hunting and fishing tradition of the Cowboy State. In addition to recognition at the winter Stock Growers Association luncheon, each landowner will receive a check for $2,000.

Landowners receiving recognition this year are: Tim and Dawn Pexton of Douglas, William “Bill” and Mary Lou Ellis of Medicine Bow, Don and Bonnie Larson of Cokeville, and Harold Miller and Sons LP, of Worland.

Funding for the program is provided by the sale of Commissioner licenses and donations made specifically in support of the award.

Wyoming Game and Fish Commission President Richard Klouda said the Access Recognition Program is unique in that it focuses solely on access provided.

“Wyoming has over 40 percent of its land in private ownership,” Klouda said. “Those lands support a huge diversity of fish and wildlife. This award is our way of saying thanks to these gracious landowners.”
