The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is reminding pheasant hunters who have drawn a permit for the Springer Special Pheasant Hunt that there will be no licenses, permits or conservation stamps sold at the check station this year.

Hunters must have the following licenses, stamps and permits with them before going to the Springer check station: Springer Permit, Wyoming Game Bird License, Wyoming Conservation Stamp, and Pheasant Special Management Stamp. These items will not be available at the check station.

“In years past hunters were able to buy licenses and stamps at the check station but will not be able to do so this year, so be sure to make your purchases before the date of your hunt,” says Robin Kepple, information specialist for the Game and Fish Department.

Licenses and stamps are available at all Game and Fish offices, license selling agents, and online at http://wgfd.wyo.gov. A Springer Permit is also required and will be mailed to those hunters who were successful in the draw.

The Springer hunt begins Oct. 16 and will run through Nov. 2. Two of the hunt days, Oct. 20 and 28, are reserved for youth under 18. Pheasants are stocked each day for the special 16-day season. Even though a hunter may not draw a permit on a particular day, openings may be available and hunters can also access the unit by signing up on the walk-on list posted at the check station. All hunters must check in and out at the Springer Check Station during the dates of the Springer special pheasant hunt.
