Wyo. Wildlife Winter Ranges Opening For Springtime
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Outdoor enthusiasts in western Wyoming will have more opportunities to get outside now that many of the winter ranges that are closed to protect wildlife are reopening for the year.
Several closures are scheduled to end Tuesday. Among them is the seasonal prohibition on antler hunting on public land west of the Continental Divide.
In Jackson Hole, areas opening on Tuesday will include the lower gate on the Gros Ventre Road and Flat Creek Road on the National Elk Refuge.
The Associated Press reports that other seasonal closures have been implemented. Grand Teton National Park has closed off some areas including sensitive habitat for bears, raptors, sage grouse and wolves.
