Hunters who have 2014 big game licenses that extend into January are reminded that even though they may have a 2014 limited quota license for an area where the season runs into January, the 2014 Conservation Stamp expires Dec. 31, 2014 and hunters will need to obtain a 2015 Conservation Stamp to hunt the January portion of the season.

Wyoming Game and Fish spokesman Al Langston says In addition, some of the areas with January seasons in the western part of the state are also areas where the Elk Feedground Special Management Permit is required. That permit also expires Dec. 31, 2014 and a new 2015 Elk Management Permit is required to hunt the January season. The 2015 Conservation stamp and elk management permit is valid for the entire calendar year.

He says Wyoming has a handful of areas with season dates and license types for elk that do not close until January 31. The Game and Fish will be selling these leftover licenses into January until the season for each hunt area and license type is closed or the licenses sell out.
