The Sheridan Regional Office of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will have an Open House Wednesday, May 7th from 3 to 5pm to gather public input on the proposed 2014 gray wolf hunting seasons, changes to license issuance and hunter safety regulations.

Mortality Quotas on he proposed 2014 gray wolf hunt areas became available at the Game and Fish website on May 1st, and will be available at Wednesday's Open House.
Hunting season dates are proposed to be similar to 2013 hunting seasons.

The Game and Fish is considering extending the deadline for nonresident landowner deer and antelope applications to May 15th and the regular nonresident deer and antelope application deadline to May 31st. Also being considered is changing the deadline time from 5pm to midnight Mountain Standard Time on the deadline dates.
General Sandhill Crane licenses are being proposed to only be available through the department's website.

Also to be discussed Wednesday is the proposed transfer of the hunter safety regulation to Commission policy. The change is in keeping with the governor's directive to reduce state regulations and will not alter the program. The crux of hunter safety language is in Wyoming statute.
