The 2014 hunting information for applying for both resident and nonresident big game licenses is now available on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) website.

Game and Fish spokesman Al Langston says applications for 2014 licenses will be accepted for both residents and nonresidents beginning Jan. 1. In a change from previous years, hunters are now required to apply for all licenses online. No paper or printed applications are available. According to the WGFD, more than 95 percent of hunters are applied online in 2013. The online process has proven to be more accurate and cost effective and saves processing time over the paper application process.

Application deadlines for each species will remain unchanged from previous years. The deadlines for non-resident elk and resident spring wild turkey applications (5 p.m. January 31, 2014) will be the first for which the online-only application process is in effect.
