CASPER, Wyo. — Hunters have until Friday to apply for remaining quota-limited elk, deer and antelope licenses, according to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
Residents and non-residents can apply for the remaining licenses and there is no allocation of quota between residents and non-residents. Residents and non-residents together can apply for up to six hunters for licenses, Game and Fish added.
There is no entry fee for the leftover draw which opened on Monday. Hunters cannot use preference points and applicants will not lose any preference points if they successfully draw a remaining license, according to Game and Fish.
“License availability is based on what is unallocated in the initial draw,” Game and Fish said. “The remaining draw has no influence on the initial draw.”
The number of remaining licenses available varies from year to year for all species, the department noted.
“Availability changes each year based on what hunters requested and received in the initial draw. Sometimes there are a lot of licenses, sometimes there aren’t a lot,” said Jennifer Doering, section manager for hunting and fishing licenses. “The licenses for this second draw are exactly what they sound like – what’s left after the first resident and non-resident draws.”
Applicants must submit their application online.
“Those without access to a computer can apply at kiosks at Game and Fish headquarters or regional offices,” Game and Fish added. “Hunters with questions about the remaining draw or how to apply can call Game and Fish at (307) 777-4600 or visit a regional office.”
