WYOMING BIG GAME HUNTING - The 2014 Wyoming hunting season is set to open tomorrow with opening day for antelope archery season.
Wyoming game and fish warden Bruce Scigliano says archery hunting for antelope isn't the most popular way to harvest the animals but it is very popular for that particular type of hunter.
And he reminds archery hunters to make sure they check regulations for additional archery rules.
Coming up in three weeks a special rifle season for limited quota deer in area 24 will open.
And Bruce tells us area 24 is a large area. For more information concerning any upcoming season you can look at all the regulations on the Wyoming game and fish website.

COWBOY FOOTBALL - The Wyoming Cowboys open their season at home August 30th against Montana, Cowboy football can be heard all season long on 14-10 KWYO.
UW ATHLEICS - The University of Wyoming's athletic department is asking for an extra $4 million with more than half of that going to buy more food for players.
The request is aimed at helping the department adjust to new and expected NCAA rule changes.
In years past universities were only allowed to provide three meals a day to players but now there are no limits.
AD Tom Burman says football players should be eating 6,000 more calories at this time of the year.
The rest of the money would pay for things including full scholarships and paying for families to join prospective players on campus visits, both changes the NCAA is expected to approve.
Burman says he is hopeful donors will match the requested state funding.
BRONCO FOOTBALL - The Denver Broncos play their the next exhibition game on the road at San Francisco Sunday afternoon, you can hear the game live on 14-10 KWYO and 87.7 FM pregame starts at 12:05 with kickoff at 2:00.
