2013 Elk Season To Be Set

WGF Logo

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is seeking public input in the setting of the 2013 big game hunting season.  Game and Fish Spokesman Al Langston says as such, meetings are being hosted in Jackson and Pinedale next week to solicit public comments and concerns. Langston says the ratio of calves to cows needed to sustain the herd is slightly higher than what is currently being seen in the Jackson Herd, but that ratio is up significantly from what it was last year and exceeds the ratio south of Jackson. Langston says as such, hunters can expect to see the season proposal for the Jackson elk herd this year to continue to focus on harvesting the portion of the herd that summers along the Snake River corridor in southern Grand Teton National Park and in hunt area 78. Since numbers of elk are near management objectives, Langston says hunt quotas are expected to be conservative once again this year.  Meanwhile, he says, the moose herd here is continuing a downward trend.  The Jackson meeting is set for 6:30 pm March 20th at the Jackson Game and Fish Office.

  • Test new gear before you buy it - October 29, 2014
    Don’t just buy your gear because it looks good. Buy it only if it fits you properly. Hiking boots that don’t fit you well will give you blisters, and you’ll spend your entire trip sitting around in camp, dreading the walk back out.
