Hunters must apply online

Dec 30, 2013 - From staff reports

Beginning in January, hunters will be required to use an online application process to apply to hunt in Wyoming.

License section manager Jennifer Doering said the Wyoming Game and Fish Department had planned to go paperless in 2015, but budget cuts forced the office to push the timeline up a year.

The majority of hunters already submit applications through the department's electronic licensing system, with 95 percent of applications from both resident and non-residents coming in online.

"We anticipate some of our customers will need help with the process, so we have very knowledgeable and professional staff members in all of our offices across the state and in our call center who are ready to help," Doering added. "In addition to our staff, each office will have a computer station available for walk-ins to apply right on the spot. We are trying to make it as easy as possible."

Application deadlines for each species will remain unchanged from previous years.

The electronic licensing system is accessible at wgfd.wyo.gov.
