Resident and nonresident hunters with specific license types in the area of the Mullen Creek Fire may be eligible for either a license reservation or refund due to limited access in the Snowy Range.

Wyoming Game and Fish Commission Chapter 44 regulation allows a license holder to request a license reservation or a license refund when the Department determines licenses cannot be used for a good cause due to a natural disaster, including wildfire.

Preference points will be reinstated if a refund is granted to non-resident hunters, and anyone who receives a refund will be eligible to purchase a preference point for 2020.

All hunters requesting a license refund or carryover must complete and sign the “Sportsperson License Review Request” form and the “Attest to Not Hunting” form. Both forms will be included with the letter and must be returned with the physical, unused, and unaltered license with all coupons intact by the deadline.

When making a decision on requesting a license refund or reservation (carryover), please review the current fire information found on the following website: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7208/. The Forest Service closure is an evolving incident and could change at any time.

Hunters are urged to heed all fire bans in place throughout Wyoming and be extremely cautious with any forms of ignition. The Department has instituted fire bans on many Commission-owned and administered lands across the state, including in the Laramie, Lander, Sheridan, and Casper regions.
