WYOMING — The deadline for several Wyoming hunting licenses is just around the corner. The deadline is Jan. 31 by midnight for nonresidential elk hunters, spring turkey hunters and Game and Fish’s Super Tag raffle.

Nonresident elk hunters and spring turkey hunters must submit their applications by Jan. 31. Nonresident elk hunt applications can be modified or withdrawn until May 9. Results should be available by May 19. Spring turkey hunters have until Feb.3 to modify or withdraw applications and should learn of draw results by Feb. 17.

Jan. 31 is also the new cut-off date to enter Game and Fish’s Super Tag raffle for 2022, which consists of one license drawing for: bighorn sheep, moose, elk, mountain goat, wild bison, deer, antelope, mountain lion, gray wolf and black bear. The Super Tag Trifecta is one drawing and the winner chooses any three licenses from the species offered. Tickets are $10 each, Trifecta tickets are $30 and all tickets can only be purchased on the Game and Fish’s website. Super Tag winners will be announced on Feb. 15.

All hunters who enter the Super Tag raffle in January will be entered into a bonus raffle. Three lucky hunters could win their choice of the Weatherby Mark V Backcountry 2.0 rifle or one of two Weatherby Mark Hunter rifles.

“Give yourself more time in case you run into issues with your Game and Fish username and password or have questions,” License Section Manager Jennifer Doering said. “Our telephone information center grows busier closer to the deadline — so don’t delay if you need help.”
