CASPER, Wyo. — People 65 years or older who have lived in Wyoming for at least 30 years will be able to purchase new “Pioneer” trapping licenses after Governor Mark Gordon signed House Bill 112 into law on Monday.

The licenses will be available for $20 and will allow licenses holders to trap furbearing animals. The licenses will be available through the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The new law will take effect July 1, 2021.
