CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Release) - Wyoming’s Game and Fish Department is reminding the public on the rules involved with the Access Yes Program.

Lands enrolled in the Wyoming Game and Fish Department Access Yes program are privately-owned and often carry additional restrictions. It’s a common misconception amongst recreationalists that Access Yes walk-in hunting or fishing areas and hunter management areas are public access areas with rules and activities allowed similar to federal public lands. However, this is not the case. Many walk-in areas and hunter management areas are only open during limited timeframes for specific game species and have strict motor vehicle travel regulations.
