(Wyo.)- Hunting Prospects Vary In Wyoming This Fall
Hunting prospects in Wyoming may just depend on where hunters go this fall.
Some animals in the northern half of the state look strong and healthy from a wet spring and green summer.
Wildlife officials in the Cody region offered plenty of doe and fawn licenses for pronghorn and deer to address crop damage.
Alan Osterland of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department says pronghorn, deer and elk will all look healthier and will be more spread out because of better forage in the hills.
However, hunters in the southwestern portion of the state may still see animals suffering the effects of drought.
Green River game warden Duane Kerr tells the Casper Star-Tribune that antelope fawn production isn't much better than last year.
