The Grizzly Hunt DRAW results will be posted on the Wyoming Game and Fish Website on Thursday, July 26 at 10 a.m. MDT.
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has opened hunting of the grizzly bear for the first time in 40 years, and has made available hunt tags for 22 grizzly bears.
Shoot’Em With A Camera was formed just over two weeks ago to encourage the public to sign up for a tag to shoot with a camera, not a gun.
Over 7,000 applicants have signed up for tags either in Hunt Area 1-6 which is the Demographic Monitoring Area (DMA) or outside the DMA in Hunt Area 7. If you applied for the DMA area , you can choose any of the 6 areas. 12 grizzlies, 11 males and one female can be hunted in the DMA.
If a female grizzly is killed in any of the hunt areas in the DMA, the hunt will be closed.
Outside the DMA, an additional 12 grizzlies can be killed without restrictions.
Hunt Area 7 hunt starts Sept 1-Nov 15.
Hunt Area 1-6 (DMA) starts Sept 15-Nov 15.
7,000 overall applicants applied for the grizzly hunt tags in Wyoming. We would like to get a better idea of the numbers of Sportsmen/women who are applied via our ShootEmWithACamera campaign.
