Wyo. Bison Hunt Hits Goal Of 200 By Season Close

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Hunters report killing 200 bison during the just-completed bison hunting season in northwest Wyoming.

The number is precisely what wildlife managers sought to trim from the Jackson Hole bison herd. Hunters took 90 bulls and 110 cows.

The hunting season ended on Jan. 6.

The majority of bison were killed either at the hunt’s mid-August onset or over the last few weeks.

Most of the animals were killed on the National Elk Refuge.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department spokesman Mark Gocke tells the Associated Press the strong finish is fairly typical.

The purpose of the hunt is to reduce bison numbers to a more manageable level and to push bison off the elk refuge in late summer and fall to protect the winter forage for elk.
