CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is proposing a land swap that could improve access to thousands of acres of state and federal land in southern Wyoming near Arlington.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is seeking public comment on the proposal through Oct. 18.

Game and Fish proposes to trade a 160-acre portion of its Wick Wildlife Habitat Management Area for a same-sized piece of private land.

The parcel to be traded is isolated from the main portion of the habitat area. The private land to be acquired is located between the habitat area and Medicine Bow National Forest.

Fish and Wildlife is involved because Game and Fish used federal funds to acquire the land now proposed for trade.
