Wyoming Leftover Hunting Licenses

When a unit has extra licenses left over, you can quickly snatch them up once they become available (See below for exact dates). You'll want to use the G&F License Availability Tool to check for availability. Then use the G&F Electronic License Service to apply for the license, or check out this link to Wyoming License Selling Agents. It's recommended by the G&F to be careful when purchasing leftover licenses, because they are often in units with difficult access.

Leftover Licenses Available After the Initial Draw

All Full Price Limited Quota and Reduced Price Limited Quota licenses remaining after the initial drawing will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis through the Department’s Electronic License Service via the WGFD website, Department offices, at automated license selling agent locations or through the submission of a paper application to the Chey¬enne Headquarters Office.

Full Price Elk, Deer and Antelope Licenses will be available July 10, 2012, at 8:00 AM Mountain Time. Reduced Price Cow/Calf Elk, Doe/Fawn Deer and Doe/Fawn Antelope Licenses will be available July 17, 2012, at 8:00 AM Mountain Time. A current list of all leftover licenses available for purchase will tentatively be located on the WGFD website on June 30, 2012.

Applicants are reminded about having permission to hunt on private land before applying for a license, otherwise you may end up with a license and no place to hunt and these licenses are nonrefundable.

Not sure if there is easy Public Access?

We've now made it easy for you.  Find your species on the left and visit that species Statewide Unit Map.  You can either find it on the map, or  find it in the list below the map.  However you get there, just scroll down to this year stats and see if the G&F department designated it as a Poor Access unit.

Remember, just because it's designated as poor access, doesn't mean you won't be able to find a place to hunt, it just means that you will have problems finding land open to hunt.  So be sure to check into the availability of land, walk-in areas, or be sure you have previous set-up private land to hunt on before purchasing a license for that unit.
