The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission’s next meeting is March 14-15, 2018 and the public is invited to attend and provide input on the agenda items and other issues. The meeting will be held in Cody at the Holiday Inn at the Buffalo Bill Village Resort, 1701 Sheridan Avenue. There will also be an open house where the public is invited to come and meet commissioners and other department personnel.
Topics the Commission will address at this meeting include the election of a new commission president and vice president and an informational presentation on preference points options for nonresidents. The Commission will also hear updates on the 2018 legislative session, the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout Collaborative Working Group, the public engagement and strategic planning process, the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp and the implementation of Chapter 60–the regulations that allows for certified game bird farm licensees to collect sage-grouse eggs from the wild and raise them.
In-person public comment opportunities are available during each specific agenda item and on any topic the public can speak to the Commission on March 14 and 15 at the end of the day; an agenda can be found on the Commission webpage.
