(Jackson, Wyo.) - Applications for wild bison are open today through February 29 for resident and nonresident hunters for the 2016 season. This is a later open date than past seasons so that mandatory reporting for the 2015 bison hunt seasons could be completed prior to opening the application period. Results will be available by May 10. Hunters may apply for a Type 1 Any Bison or a Type 4 Cow/Calf license. Harvesting a bull on a Type 1 license is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity and are exempt from applying for a Type 1. Applicants who harvested a cow/calf under a Type 1 license may apply for a Type 1 next year, but are not eligible to apply for a Type 4 license for five years. Hunters who harvest a cow/calf on a Type 4 license are not eligible to apply for a Type 1 or Type 4 license for five years. More information on the applications is available here.
