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.

  • 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 […]
