|It's time for Wyoming resident hunters to make their fall plans.
Applications for limited-quota elk, deer and antelope licenses must be received at the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. on May 31.
Tom Rowe, the G&F's license draw manager, encourages hunters to apply early in the application period. "That way if there's something missing or that needs clarified on your application, we have plenty time to contact you," he said.
Applying early helps ensure the application will reach Cheyenne on time in the event the mail is accidentally delivered to another location or if an emergency delays delivery.
Rowe asks hunters to make sure applications are complete by signing the application, entering their date of birth on the top line and making sure proof of residency is completed on youth applications.
The resident elk, deer and antelope drawing is scheduled for July 3.
Hunters can check season dates and quotas before applying by calling (800) 842-1934 or by picking up a "summary map" for deer, elk or antelope at license agents or G&F offices after May 1.
Applications are available at the same outlets. Resident hunters can purchase general elk and deer licenses from license agents through the end of the season. There is no application fee when buying licenses over the counter.
