Wyoming governor donating wild bison hunting license; raffle will raise money for conservation


CASPER, Wyo. — Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon is donating a wild bison hunting license for the fourth year in a row to be raffled off in order to raise money for conservation.

“The bison is a stately symbol of Wyoming and a fitting hunt to raise money for conservation,” Gordon said in a Monday news release from the Wyoming Game & Fish Department. “I am pleased to once again offer this opportunity to residents who care so deeply for wildlife.”

The raffle is open to Wyoming residents eligible to hunt big game in the state. The winner will receive a 2022 wild bison hunting license, but will be responsible for purchasing other required stamps and applicable licenses, according to Game & Fish. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Wyoming Governor’s Big Game License Coalition. The winner of the raffle will be announced June 15.

“Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website,” the release states. “There is a limit of one ticket per person.”

“Hunters must be at least 14 years of age by the beginning of hunting season and meet hunter education requirements. The wild bison license is non-transferable. Hopeful hunters should review the bison hunt areas on the Game & Fish website.”
