Leftover Hunting Licenses Sell Tomorrow

by Jackson Hole Radio News

There is another opportunity to purchase a leftover license for hunting big game this fall. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will reopen leftover license sales on August 4, 2016 beginning at 8 a.m.

“Due to complications with our credit card vendor we did not sell out of leftover licenses,” said Jennifer Doering, Game and Fish license section manager. “We’ve made an effort to contact everyone who has applied to ensure all hunters have the licenses they attempted to buy. These are the licenses still left to sell within the approved quota by the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission.”

The schedule for the additional license sales beginning on August 4, MDT is:

  • Antelope – 8 a.m.
  • Doe/fawn antelope – 9 a.m.
  • Deer- 10 a.m.
  • Doe/fawn deer – 11 a.m.
  • Elk – 12 noon
  • Cow/calf elk – Beginning at 1 p.m.-4 p.m.

“The staggered release times are to do all that we can to prevent problems with credit card purchasing,” said John Kennedy, Game and Fish deputy director. “We want the public to have every opportunity to purchase available licenses which is why we’re opening a second leftover sale.”
