Depending on the type of license desired, prospective applicants require a sportsperson identification number, date of birth, the last four digits of a Social Security number and party identification number if the applicant belongs to a party. A tax identification number or a passport number are acceptable in the absence of a Social Security number.
There are numerous sundry supportive documents and information that prospective applicants must possess when applying for a Wyoming hunting license. Youths, adults and pioneers seeking a Pioneer Heritage license must know the species intended to hunt and preference points prior to applying. There are separate applications for resident and non-resident landowners. PDF applications are available at WGFD.WYO.gov.
The type of species an applicant intends to hunt determines specific application procedures. A hunter may apply to participate in a draw, or he may outright purchase a non-quota fishing license or a leftover big game license, providing there are any available at the time of the application.
A hunter may purchase up to six licenses as an individual sportsperson. The application process provides an opportunity for the hunter to select the hunt area and type of game sought, including elk, white-tailed or any kind of antlered deer, wild bison, wild turkey, moose and bighorn sheep.
