Joel Meena, BOW area representative, reported that the BOW will be presenting three proposals to the Game and Fish on November 16th in Sundance. First proposal is a Statewide antelope opener of August 15th. Second proposal concerns Archery Only (type 9) elk tags in limited quota areas. Third proposal asks to extend deer seasons in a number of areas.
SNOWY RANGE BEAR REGULATIONS: There will be a public meeting December 5th (7.00 PM) at the Game and Fish Regional Office in Laramie. The regulation being proposed is to open the Snowy Range Bear Area to Rifles September 1st. For those of you who bow hunt, this means there will be rifle hunters out there hunting bears while you are elk/deer hunting with your bow. Joel Meena and Neal Perkins have offered rides to anyone interested in going to the meeting to protest this proposal. If you hunt in the Snowy Range area this is a meeting you should attend. If passed, this change will last at least three (3) years.
There is a sign up sheet posted at the club for the Big Game Awards. If you have harvested Big Game with your bow this year, please write down your name and the animal(s) taken so that you can be recognized at the Annual Banquet for a successful hunting season.
