The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will be holding a public meeting to discuss mountain lion populations, their management and proposed hunting season quotas. The Game and Fish reviews Chapter 42 mountain lion regulations every three years and encourages all interested public to attend these meetings. Any changes in regulations or harvest strategies will be discussed at these meetings, and the information gathered will be summarized and brought to the Game and Fish Commission for final approval at their July 7-8 Commission meeting in Pinedale.

In addition, the Game and Fish will be proposing to combine several regulations regarding disabled hunters into one regulation. Game and Fish is also proposing to outline a process to make revisions to the Bighorn/Domestic Sheep Plan as well as simplifying their nongame wildlife regulation.

The meeting will be held at 6pm, Tuesday, May 24 at the Virginian Lodge in Jackson.
