Nonresidents who have yet to apply for deer and antelope licenses this year might want to consider the online application process to help ensure the application is received by the March 15 deadline date.
The popularity of online applications continues to grow according to Aaron Pelto, License Draw manager for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
In increasing numbers, hunters are turning to their computers when it comes time to apply for a big game license. So far, this year several license deadlines have come and gone, but once again the online process is proving to be very efficient.
Deadlines that have already passed include nonresident elk and resident and nonresident deadlines for spring wild turkey, bighorn sheep, moose and mountain goat. Pelto said that so far, the majority of the applications received have been online.
To get into the 2010 drawing for nonresident deer and antelope, applications, whether paper or online, must be received by 5 p.m. on the March 15 deadline date. For online applications, hunters can go to the Game and Fish Web site http://gf.state.wy.us. Following the nonresident deer and antelope deadline, the next application period is May 1-31 for resident limited quota elk, deer and antelope licenses.
