Wyoming Hunting and Fishing Information

Hunting Information

A tradition of hunting on Wyoming's public lands began more than a century ago. That tradition continues to thrive today. Many of Wyoming's residents are avid hunters and even those hunters who live in cities are within a short distance to public lands. Likewise, people from across the country travel to Wyoming each fall to experience the thrill of hunting Wyoming's big game species. Popular game include mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk, moose, pronghorn, bighorn sheep and mountain goat as well as game birds such as spotted, blue and ruffled grouse and wild turkey.
