The State of Wyoming does a great job of managing its wildlife and that is why the hunting is so good. In order for this to happen, they limit hunting and divide the state into many different areas. An elk hunting license may only be good in one small part of the state. This can get complicated in filling out the license application so, please call if you have any questions.
Wyoming Game and Fish use a lottery system for issuing elk hunting licenses. They accept applications in the month of January. In January, we will contact all of the hunters that have reservations with us for the fall of that year and we will help at that time.

There are two ways to put in your application to Wyoming Game and Fish. One is their online application and the other is the paper application. In the past few years, we have gotten away from the paper application. The online process works great. It take about 15 minutes for me to talk our hunters through the process. When finished, they simply print their receipt, fax it, or scan it and email to my office.
The nonresident special elk hunting license is now $1057.00 plus an application fee of $14.00 plus $50.00 for a preference point which brings the total amount to $1121.00.
