On July 13, Josh Coursey, Albert Sommers, and Liisa Anselmi-Dalton, members of the Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce will host a listening session with the public in the Lovatt Room at the Sublette County Library from 7-8 p.m. The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce was the creation of Governor Gordon, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission, and leadership of the Wyoming Legislature.
The Wyoming Wildlife Taskforce's charge is to study top-priority wildlife policy issues facing the state related to the allocation of hunting opportunity, sportsperson access and other issues. The topics will be identified by the taskforce members for study over an 18-month period with the goal of presenting conclusions and recommendations to the Wyoming Legislature, Game and Fish Commission and governor to support decision-making on Wyoming’s wildlife resources.
License allocation, preference point system, waiting periods, access, choose your weapon, youth licenses, and overuse of rivers by guided fishing boats are some of the topics being considered for discussion. Find out more about the taskforce at https://sites.google.com/wyo.gov/wyomingwildlifetaskforce, and comments can be submitted on this website. Please come to the Listening Session and give us your thoughts. I can be reached at [email protected] for questions or comments.
