Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission sets the opening and closing hunting season dates for each species.
- After giving 48 hours notice, the big game hunting season may be closed if the Wyoming Fish and Game Commission:
- Decides to shorten the season in a hunting area because the harvest quota has been reached or…
- Determines that an emergency has occurred that warrants the closure.
- For current information on hunting and trapping seasons, check the Hunting Information for each particular game species on the WGFD website.
