Mountain Lion

Game and Fish Department biologists say mountain lion numbers have increased significantly in Wyoming over the past 30 years. Hunters killed 181 mountain lions in 2004, according to Game and Fish data.

Wyoming is Rated No. 3 for the very best lions hunts in Rocky Mountain region. Mountain lions have been managed as a trophy game species in Wyoming since 1974.

Although not commonly seen, mountain lions are widespread throughout Wyoming. They prefer rocky, brushy areas with steep slopes or cliffs and scattered openings in the trees, but in the past few years have been encountered in more marginal habitats, often close to human habitation.

Mountain lion tracks are up to 3 ½ inches long. The tracks are distinguished from the coyote, dog, or wolf by a distinctive 3-lobed appearance of the heel pad and the absence of claw marks, since the claws are retractable

Black Bear

Bear black hunting in Wyoming can be an exhilarating experience. For bear black hunting in Wyoming, permits are done by drawings using a weighted points system.

The Department will continue to provide hunting opportunities in both spring and fall seasons. Black bear status has evolved from predator to game animal to big-game animal to trophy game animal.

The Snowy, Black bears range in color from blond to black in Wyoming. Light brown, chocolate brown and cinnamon are common colorations. Combinations of color phases can occur, such as light brown body with darker brown legs. Weights of 57 adult male and 39 adult female black bears captured during Department research and damage operations from 1988 – 2005 ranged from 120 to 440 pounds (average 248 pounds) for males and from 85 to 250 pounds (average 160) for females.

 

Buffalo

The only continuously wild bison herd in the United States resides within Yellowstone National Park. Numbering between 3,000 and 3,500.

Onset of the natural regulation era set into motion a chain of events that have led to the bison of Yellowstone Park migrating to lower elevations outside the park in search of winter forage. Population control is necessary because overgrazing will deplete the range. The discrete hunting of buffalo on their winter ranges outside of the park is an obvious and profitable solution to control buffalo numbers.

Bison can reach up to 6 feet 6 inches (2 m) tall, 10 feet (3 m) long, and weigh 900 to 2,200 pounds (410 to 1,000 kg). As typical in ungulates, the male bison is slightly larger. The biggest specimens on record have weighed as much as 2,500 pounds (1,100 kg). The heads and forequarters are massive, and both sexes have short, curved horns, which they use in fighting for status within the herd and for defense.

This year’s hunt 2006-07 offers 140 tags including 45 cow/calf permits and 95 either sex including 16 permits for Indian tribes.

Rocky Mountain Goat
pricelist

The Mountain Goat, also known as the Rocky Mountain Goat, is a large-hoofed mammal found only in North America Mountain goats are the largest mammals found in their high-altitude habitats, which reach elevations of 13,000 ft or more.

Throughout the year, the animals usually stay above the tree line, but they will migrate seasonally to higher or lower elevations within that range. Daily movements by individual mountain goats are primarily confined to areas on the same mountain face, drainage basin, or alpine opening.

Daily movements reflect an individual’s needs for foraging, resting, thermoregulation and security from predators or disturbance Nannies can be very competitive and protective of their space and food sources. They will fight with one another for dominance in conflicts that can ultimately include all the nannies in the herd. In these battles, nannies will circle each other with their heads lowered, showing off their horns. As with fights between billies during breeding season, these conflicts can occasionally lead to injury or even death, but they are largely harmless.
