Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce to meet in Casper on Monday


CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will be holding a meeting from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, July 19 at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 1150 North Poplar St. in Casper. The public can attend in person or online via Zoom.

“The Taskforce will continue discussions on policies that might sustainably increase resident sportsperson opportunities for the ‘big 5’ species — moose, sheep, goat, bison and grizzly bear,” the Wyoming Game and Fish Department said in their announcement of the meeting. “Other topics for the meeting include sustainably increasing resident opportunity for deer, elk and antelope hunting as well as private landowner matters.”

“The public can submit comments to the Taskforce online and will have several chances to speak to the Taskforce during the meeting.”

The full agenda for the meeting, including registration information for people wishing to participate by Zoom, is available on the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce website.

“Meetings will be recorded and available for viewing online within a week on the website,” Game and Fish adds.

The taskforce was convened in order to study “top-priority wildlife policy issues facing the state related to the allocation of hunting opportunity, sportsperson access and other issues,” Game and Fish says.

The taskforce will be studying the topics over an 18-month period. They will present recommendations to the Wyoming Legislature, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and the governor once they have reached their conclusions.
