Wyoming Fishing License

In 1921, the Game and Fish Commission was established to provide citizen oversight to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. As with many wildlife agencies, hunters and anglers have traditionally provided nearly all the financial resources tosupport wildlife management, with 80% of our funds coming from license fees and excise taxes on hunting and fishing equipment. Only about 6% of our funding comes from the State’s General fund which is used for specific programs; Aquatic Invasive Species, Sage Grouse, Veterinary Services, and wolf management. The additional funds come from a variety of sources including stamps, fees and various grants.
