3,000 doe-fawn licenses available near Sheridan, Wyoming

Sherodan, Wyo. (AP) – The Wyoming Game and Fish Department plans
to issue 3,000 licenses to hunt deer in an area near Sheridan this
fall.

The department says recent mild winters and a high reproduction
rate for deer mean more opportunities for hunters. The purpose is
to reduce the deer population so they do less damage to livestock
forage and wildlife habitat. Deer also can be a hazard on roads and
highways.

The licenses apply to Hunt Area 24 outside Sheridan. Hunting
season begins Sept. 1 and ends Dec. 20. Hunters who buy the
licenses will be allowed to kill up to four does or fawns.
