Each year the Sheridan Region Game and Fish releases a series of accomplishments regarding their various programs that outline how sportsmen and women's dollars are spent in northeast Wyoming. The latest 2011 Sheridan Region Game and Fish Accomplishments focuses on wildlife enforcement and terrestrial habitat.

There are many examples of how G&F officials successfully caught poachers and others who violated wildlife regulations last year, many of which would not been caught without the public's assistance says Game and Fish Information Officer Warren Mischke.

Mischke pointed out that the Sheridan Terrestrial Habitat program was once again a success last year.

Mischke also said that Jellison does a lot of work with landowners and federal agencies to design, fund and implement habitat enhancement and restoration projects.
