The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reminding big game hunters that it is unlawful to dump carcasses or other refuse on public lands.
Hunters are encouraged to properly dispose of animal carcasses at an approved facility. For Teton, Sublette and Lincoln counties, approved facilities can be found at Jackson, Pinedale, Big Piney/Marbleton and Thayne respectively.
The Pinedale and Marbleton facilities do not charge a fee for carcass disposal as long as there is no additional garbage being disposed of with the carcasses. The Jackson facility also does not charge a fee for carcass disposal.
The Thayne facility has a minimum fee of $10 with fees being based on weight.
Hunters are encouraged to contact the facility they are interested in for any special requirements.
