CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wildlife officials are reminding hunters, trappers and anglers that they are required to stop at a check station if it is on their normal route, even if they did not kill an animal.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1De5cD3 ) check stations help biologists gather information about game populations. Check station employees will often measure antler size and body fat and collect teeth and lymph nodes to check for age and disease. The information ultimately helps Wyoming Game and Fish officials make management decisions.

Stops at the check stations are required even if the meat or fish has been cut and wrapped or processed.

Those who don’t stop can be fined.
