What Do I Need to Hunt in Wyoming?

Your Wyoming hunting vacation will require careful planning and preparation. Non-resident license numbers are limited, and quotas are issued through a lottery-type drawing. Decide what species you want to hunt and apply for a hunting license well before your trip. Wyoming also implements a Preference Point system, where you can purchase points to improve your odds in the drawing. To hunt in Wyoming, you will need: 

  • Hunting License
  • Conservation Stamp
  • Proof of Hunter Safety
