July 20 Deadline For
Leftover Wyoming Tags
Hunters are alerted that applications for leftover deer, elk and antelope licenses must be received at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. July 20. The second drawing will be held around July 31. Licenses remaining following the drawing will be sold "as processed" through the Cheyenne office and some northwest Wyoming elk licenses will be sold through the G&F's Jackson and Pinedale offices.

Ninety-four different types of elk licenses are left in 72 areas. The majority of the licenses are for antlerless elk, although nine areas are offering "any elk tags" and 13 areas have archery-only antlered tags.

Twelve areas and three nonresident regions (B, C and J) have leftover deer licenses. "Any antelope" licenses are available in 32 hunt areas.

Leftover doe/fawn antelope and deer, and cow/calf elk licenses are not issued in the second drawing but will be sold first-come, first-served at license agents in or near the respective hunt areas beginning August 15.

Hunters are also alerted that the deadline to apply for early sandhill crane is July 31 and fall turkey is August 15.
