The rifle hunting season for antelope west of Casper opens this weekend.

Officials with Wyoming Game and Fish say antelope populations statewide have been in a steady decline over the past few years.

Casper region wildlife supervisor Brian Olsen said experienced hunters, however, will notice relatively unchanged local numbers.

“You’re going to see less yearling bucks, but adult buck numbers are very similar to what they were in previous years,” Olsen said.

Antelope licenses are subject to a limited quota draw. Olsen said, if you don’t already have your license, you’re probably out of luck for the remainder of the season.

“There were not any leftovers after the original and secondary draws, so hunters cannot buy a license over the counter – they’re all sold out,” Olsen said.

Olsen said archery seasons for elk, deer and antelope have already opened in most areas of Wyoming. Most mule deer seasons are scheduled to open Oct. 1.
