Hunting is one of the biggest management tools in the toolbox for managing big game and other wildlife. In order to take part in hunting in Wyoming, however, hunters must have valid licenses for various species, times of year, units or sub-areas to hunt, and genders of those species. That is where the license application process comes into play.

Each year, the WGFD holds drawings for limited quota hunting licenses. Due to the complexity of landscape-level issues, variances in herd management needs, and high-demand for licenses, this process can be complex. When hunters unlock the full potential of the license application process, however, hunters in Wyoming can find access to more big game hunting opportunities than nearly any other state in the U.S.

Tune in to these hunting license application Q & A’s to better understand the plethora of hunting opportunities in Wyoming and find out how you can contribute to Wyoming’s management of big game species while also having incredible hunting experiences.
