CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission has nominated three candidates from Wyoming, Montana and Texas for the agency's director position.

Gov. Mark Gordon will interview the three candidates and appoint the new director.

The three finalists are: Brian Nesvik, who is currently chief of the wildlife division for Wyoming Game and Fish and a 24-year veteran of the department; Gary Bertellotti, who is the regional supervisor for Montana, Fish, Wildlife and Parks in Great Falls; and David Morrison, small game program director for Texas Parks and Wildlife in Austin, Texas.

They are seeking to replace Director Scott Talbott, who will retire this month after 34 years with the department.
