If you are preparing to waterfowl hunt this season, be sure to have all your licenses and stamps before heading out. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department reminds the public that Wyoming has several license and stamp requirements that hunters must abide by when afield.
“Each license and stamp Game and Fish requires helps waterfowl conservation and improves habitat for the birds,” said Noelle Smith, Game and Fish migratory game bird and wetland biologist.
Here are the Wyoming requirements:
Hunters who harvest banded ducks are asked to report the band to the North American Bird Banding Program along with the location of the harvest, species and band number.
“This information helps Game and Fish collect information on birds and their habitats, as well as contributes to developing hunting regulations and other management efforts,” Smith said.
Hunters can view additional waterfowl and migratory bird hunting requirements and season dates in the 2023 Upland Game Bird, Small Game, Migratory Game Bird and Wild Turkey Hunting Regulations.

Chukar, Hun numbers are down from last year, but stable. They will be in heavy draws, flats and cliffed areas. Pheasant are up and tend to follow water lines or crops. Mountain Grouse numbers are normal, but not directly in our area. Sage Grouse season is closed, we have not seen many around.
Despite a slow start to the season, the birds are coming down through the central zone and into the Big Horn River valley. As of the first week of November, we've seen late season teal, woodies that normally are in Nebraska and Southern Colorado. As the November cold snap comes in the smaller ducks will head south. We've seen lots of Mallards already with fair amounts of Widgeon and Gadwalls. No Goldeneye yet, but some smaller divers have arrived. Geese are all over as usual. Fairly fresh ducks for Thanksgiving, but late season ducks will be wary this year.
We are the GobbleOpolis of Turkey hunting! The turkeys are everywhere, but have adapted to private land at this point in the season.
