JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reminds people that it is illegal right now to gather horns or shed antlers on public lands west of the Continental Divide in Wyoming.
The ban is in effect through April 30 and includes all state-owned lands as well as federal lands.
In addition, many big game winter ranges in both Teton and Sublette counties have further restrictions to either human presence or motor vehicles during the winter months.
The purpose of the seasonal closure is to minimize harassment or disturbance of big game animals on their winter and spring ranges when animals are most vulnerable to stress and displacement.
