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.

  • 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, […]
  • Windy At Times Today, Unseasonably Mild Through Saturday - October 23, 2014

  • 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 […]
