CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Even though the draw for the “Limited Number Hunts” is over, not all hope is lost for hunters who didn’t get called this year.

There’s still plenty of opportunities for residents to get outdoors and hunt this fall. Every person is allowed to buy an over-the-counter elk and deer license, and general elk or deer hunts are still allowed.

Residents can also apply for any left-over licenses which open up Monday, June 21 and will be available for 5 more days. These were licenses that were not allocated in the original draws, so licenses are limited and hunters are urged to apply early.

Finally, hunters can apply for the “Super Tag.”This raffle ticket means hunters can buy as many chances as they’d like and they can choose up to ten different species licenses.

There’s also the “Super Tag Trifecta” where hunters can hunt up to three of their chosen species. Last but not least is bird hunts, the small game in the fall and fishing.

Fishing is always open to residents and non-residents; licenses are good for 12 months.

Online interactive fishing guides can show you new areas to fish, or species-specific waters and you can try new fishing challenges from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website

“Just because you didn’t draw your desired hunt is no reason to stay inside and plan to do nothing in the fall. There lots of opportunities still out there,” said Sara DiRienzo- Public Information Officer – Wyoming Game And Fish Department.

Non- residents can also access all the same hunting opportunities. Check out Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s website for more information.
