The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will hold a series of meetings to gather information from the public to help develop proposals for 2015 hunting seasons. Additionally, Game and Fish would like to focus on a couple of issues that have been brought up over the past three years.

Game and Fish encourages the public to attend these meetings to share information, observations, and ideas as it develops proposals for the 2015 hunting seasons. These types of meetings have been conducted in the Lander Region for the past three years, and Game and Fish personnel reported a "great" response from the public. This year, representatives from the Bureau of Land Management and United States Forest Service will be helping at the meetings to provide information and listen to concerns regarding the ATV topic.

"We appreciate the feedback we receive and have been able to incorporate several suggestions into the hunting seasons. This year we want to focus some of the discussion on topics we know have been important to a majority of those attending in the past," said Regional Wildlife Supervisor Jason Hunter.

The State of Wyoming supports the Americans with Disabilities Act. Anyone requiring auxiliary aids for this meeting should contact the Game and Fish Lander Region office at: 1-800-654-7862. Every effort will be made for reasonable accommodations.
