FALL TURKEY AND EARLY GOOSE APPLICATION PERIOD KICKS OFF

WYGFD

Contact: Jeff Obrecht
For Immediate Release

CHEYENNE – Hunters are alerted it is time to apply for limited quota fall turkey licenses and western Wyoming’s early season sandhill crane and Canada goose permits.

Fall turkey applications must be received at the Game and Fish Department’s Cheyenne office by 5 p.m. Aug. 15 and early migratory permits by 5 p.m. July 31.

Limited quota areas this fall are area 1 (Niobrara, Weston and Crook counties), 2 (Laramie Peak) and 4 (Goshen County and Platte County east of I-25). Licenses can be purchased over the counter from the G&F’s Cheyenne, Casper and Sheridan offices and local license agents for area 3 (Sheridan and northern Johnson counties), 5 (Campbell County) and 7 the Kaycee area. All other turkey hunt areas are closed this fall.

Turkey licenses cost residents $10 and nonresidents $50.

Unlike big game applications, residents and nonresidents can apply for the early crane and goose permits together as a party. The maximum party size is two. The permits are free, but waterfowl licensing regulations apply.

Applications and regulations for fall turkey and early migratory birds are available from G&F offices, license agents or by calling (800) 842-1934 or (307) 777-4600 out of state.

G&F Waterfowl Biologist Larry Roberts predicts that early crane and goose hunters will experience the high harvest success of past years. “These seasons provide a unique early season hunting opportunity and help reduce damage to crop fields,” he says.

Roberts alerts all migratory bird hunters, including early sandhill crane and goose hunters, they will need to pick up a federal harvest information program or HIP permit before hunting. The information from the permit will be used to target specific groups of hunters for more accurate harvest surveys. The permits are free and can picked up at license agents, G&F offices and from the G&F Web site at http://gf.state.wy.us.
