The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will gather for their next meeting 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. July 8 in Casper. The meeting will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, 1150 North Poplar St. The public is invited to attend and participate in-person or online through Zoom.
The Taskforce’s main topic for the upcoming meeting is to examine policies that might sustainably increase resident sportsperson opportunities for the “big 5” species — moose, sheep, goat, bison and grizzly bear. This discussion comes with a proposal to consider a 90/10 allocation for resident/nonresident licenses. The public can submit comments to the Taskforce on this and any other topic online, and will have a chance to speak to the Taskforce during the meeting.
The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce was convened to study top-priority wildlife policy issues facing the state related to the allocation of hunting opportunity, sportsperson access and other issues. The topics will be identified by the taskforce members with input from the public for study over an 18-month period with the goal of presenting conclusions and recommendations to the Wyoming Legislature, Game and Fish Commission and governor to support decision-making on Wyoming’s wildlife resources. The Taskforce has no rule-making authority.
The meeting agenda is available on the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce website at wyomingwildlifetaskforce.com, along with other supporting documents. The agenda includes registration details for members of the public participating virtually. Meetings will be recorded and available for viewing online within a week on the website.
