U.S. Forest Service Considers Permit for State Elk Management Activities on Federal Land in Wyoming

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission has applied to the U.S. Forest Service for a permit for the continued use of facilities on National Forest System lands to conduct elk management activities, including providing hay to wintering elk, at feeding grounds in Bondurant, Wyo. and Alpine, Wyo. between November and April each year. The Forest Service is considering whether it should authorize long-term use, and if so, what conditions should attach to the special use permit. The Forest Service is accepting public comments through February 14, 2022.
