Comments Sought On Wolf Agreement

WGF Logo

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission is seeking public comment on its revised Gray Wolf Management Plan after a recent agreement between Governor Matt Mead and the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  Several public meetings have been scheduled to solicit those comments. Under the proposed plan, Wyoming will maintain at least 100 wolves and 10 breeding pairs outside of Yellowstone National Park. The Trophy Game Management Area for wolves would extend about 50 miles to the south from its current location near the Wyoming-Idaho border. The expansion area would be managed as a Trophy Game Management Area from Oct. 15 through the end of February. For all other months wolves would be managed as predators in the expansion area. Among the eight meetings around the state are a meeting at the Center for the Arts in Jackson August 24th and a meeting at the Sublette County Library in Pinedale August 23rd.  Those meetings begin at 7:00 pm. Written comments may also be submitted before 5:00 pm on September 9th at any Game and Fish regional office, by mail, or by fax.  After the public comment period, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission will consider the plan at a special commission meeting, September 14th in Casper.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
