The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has launched an online tool to help sportsmen plan and carry out their hunting trips.

The tool, known as the Wyoming Big Game Hunt Planner, revolutionizes the area maps available for Wyoming and combines species-specific hunt information, drawing odds, license details and harvest information.

"Wyoming Hunt Planner will be invaluable to hunters who are applying in January," said Scott Talbott, Director of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. "This method of sharing hunt information is the first Game and Fish has been able to offer online."

The planner walks hunters through the process of preparing a hunt by outlining hunting needs and requirements.

Hunters can select their prospective hunt area from an interactive map, view land ownership details, overlay different species hunt areas and even customize their own maps.

"Wyoming Hunt Planner completely revamps the way hunters can prepare and allows hunters to find the best option to fit their goals with the interactive and customizable maps," said Chris Botkins, Wyoming Game and Fish Webmaster. "We have taken public input and worked to make a user-friendly tool."
