Green River Wildlife Supervisor Steve DeCecco says there will be six open houses and one final public meeting held in southwest Wyoming March 24 through March 27. Regional wildlife staff is hoping to hear from as many people as possible.

“In January, we held four public meetings around the region,” DeCecco said. “We did that so we could gather public input prior to season development and achieve more meaningful and timely dialog with the public, well in advance of drafting 2014 seasons. This is the third year we held meetings earlier in the annual hunting season setting cycle, and we received input from more than 60 people. Now, we are following up that initial information gathering process in March with open houses and a final public information-gathering meeting. This is an opportunity for sportsmen to share any information, observations, or ideas you think would be valuable in developing 2014 hunting season proposals.”

Open houses and Final Public Information Gathering Meeting will be held at the following locations:

Monday, March 24, Kemmerer, Public Library, 6:30 PM

Monday, March 24, Baggs, Valley Community Center, 6:30 PM

Tuesday, March 25, Cokeville, Town Hall, 6:30 PM

Wednesday, March 26, Evanston, Public Library, Bridger-Carter Room, 6:30 PM

Wednesday, March 26, Green River, Game and Fish Office, 4:00 PM

Thursday, March 27, Mountain View, Mountain View School District Bldg., 6:30 PM

The Final Public Information Gathering Meeting will be held on Monday, March 31, in Green River at the Game and Fish Office, beginning at 7:00 PM.
