AIS Inspections Successful

AIS Inspection

This is the second summer the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has been conducting Aquatic Invasive Species Inspections throughout the state, with one of those sites very evident north of Jackson for those boaters heading north into the National Park.  Game and Fish Spokesman Ray Hageman says the number of boats inspected have already eclipsed last year’s inspections.  Hagaman says even though a month of the busy summer boating season remain, 15,000 watercraft have already been inspected.  He says a survey of the non-resident boaters on Wyoming waters indicates a majority of them were familiar with Wyoming’s new mandatory inspection policy.  The same survey shows that the non-resident boaters are also familiar with the Aquatic Invasive Species decal requirements that went into effect in 2010. Hageman points out that boaters must stop at every Aquatic Invasive Species checkpoint on their route regardless of if the boat has been sealed from a previous inspection.  Since the program began three years ago, Hageman says more than 120-thousand boats have been inspected.  As yet, none of the invasive species being sought have been introduced to Wyoming waters.

  • Whitetails can be creatures of habit - October 16, 2014
    Quite a few mule deer hunters are already back from their hunts. They might even have had a venison steak for supper last night. But muleys aren’t the only deer in Wyoming. There’s also whitetail – the other deer meat. If you’re an ardent whitetail hunter, you probably haven’t even stacked your gear by the […]
