Game and Fish Keeps Short Grouse Season

Game and Fish Keeps Short Grouse Season

The Wyoming Game and Fish determined Sheridan will have a three-day sage grouse hunt this fall, despite a proposal to cancel the season.

The decision was made despite declining numbers of sage grouse within the area and a consideration of placing the grouse on the endangered species list. Eric Keszler, Public Information Officer for the Game and Fish, said a short season won't have an impact on the species as a whole.

The Casper Star Tribune reported some proposals to end the hunting season were based on politics, and not biology.
