Important Notes

  • Grizzly bear hunting in Wyoming is subject to strict regulations and management to ensure the sustainability and conservation of grizzly bear populations.
  • The specified hunting start and end dates are for different hunt units, with each unit having its own specific season.
  • Hunters should be aware that grizzly bear hunting is highly regulated and often contentious due to conservation concerns. It's crucial to stay informed about the legal status and any changes to regulations regarding grizzly bear hunting.
  • As of my last update in April 2023, grizzly bear hunting in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, which includes parts of Wyoming, was not permitted due to federal protections. Therefore, hunters must check the most current legal status and regulations with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and federal wildlife authorities.
  • Compliance with these regulations is essential for legal and ethical hunting practices.

Given the sensitive nature of grizzly bear hunting and its legal implications, it's imperative for hunters to consult the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and federal wildlife authorities for the most up-to-date information on seasons, regulations, and the legal status of grizzly bear hunting.
