CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - If there were ever any questions that Wyoming loves its outdoors and is invested in its hunting opportunities...

The Wildlife Task Force can attest to it after receiving over 1000 public comments on hunting issues.

The Wyoming Wildlife Task Force will be meeting on Thursday in Casper.

They took public comments on 6 recommendation items. These items include license allocation, high-demand hunting areas, the 90-10 resident to non-resident license split and more.

This meeting’s recommendation will then move to the Game and Fish Commission or lawmakers and may potentially change state regulations and laws.

“People who are interested in finding out the next steps in some of the public comments that they submitted should definitely watch the meeting and continue to be engaged as the task force moves forward with finalizing some of their discussions around hunting opportunity,” said Sara Di Rienzo, Public Information Officer for Wyoming Game & Fish Department.

The task force comprises 18 people appointed by Gov. Mark Gordon.

One of the recommendations the task force made last year passed the previous legislative session as House Bill 43, which changed the 90-10 licenses split, favoring residents.
