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.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
