CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The deadline to submit applications for the fall hunting season is quickly approaching.

Wyoming Game and Fish announced on its site that residents and non-residents should make sure their applications are in by midnight Tuesday, May 31. Applications need to be submitted on the department’s website, wgfd.wyo.gov.

This includes applications for:

  • Resident elk

Those applying for a license, including youth applicants, must have a Game and Fish login account. Help on this process is available in both step-by-step videos and written instructions
