WYGFD Plans to Reduce Research, Fish Stocking

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has formulated a plan to operate with reduced funding.

Al Langston, public information officer for the Game and Fish, says most operational areas within the department will be affected.

Proposals to raise license fees flopped during this year's legislative session, so the department has had to make cuts where they can.

Langston said the cuts go across the agency. The biggest cuts planned include by not filling vacated job positions, cutting research, printing fewer copies of the department's magazine, “Wyoming Wildlife,” and reducing fish stocking by 20 percent.
