Wyoming Application Deadline

Moose, Bighorn Sheep and Mountain Goat

Don't forget, the moose, bighorn sheep and mountain goat application deadline is February 28 for both nonresidents and residents.

"We urge all hunters to remind their buddies about the moose and bighorn sheep deadline," said Larry Gabriele, G&F Fiscal Division chief. "We don’t want anyone to forget to apply because getting behind on preference points severely diminishes the chances of drawing in future years."

Although this is a leap year and February goes through the 29th, applicants are reminded the application deadline remains Feb. 28 as stated in the regulations.

Applicants are alerted that a moose or bighorn sheep preference point can now be purchased for $7, without actually applying for a license. Complete instructions are available in the application booklet.

Hunters with less than the maximum preference points are also alerted they have a greater chance of drawing beginning this year. For both the resident and nonresident drawings, 25 percent of the quota will be issued by a random drawing without respect to a hunter’s number of preference points.

Applications are available at license agents and G&F offices. Nonresidents can receive an application booklet by calling (307) 777-4600.
