CHEYENNE (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reports another increase in hunting applications from both residents and non-residents last year.

Game and Fish Director Scott Talbott says the hunting opportunities in Wyoming are sought after because of the high-quality wildlife, access and the experience with friends and family.

Talbott says the agency thanks hunters for their support of Wyoming’s wildlife conservation because they provide the bulk of Game and Fish’s revenue from license sales.

Many big game applications opened last Wednesday. All applications must be submitted online.

Residents and non-residents can apply for elk, antelope, deer, spring turkey, bighorn sheep, moose and mountain goat. The first deadline is Jan. 31 for nonresident elk and resident and nonresident spring turkey.
