Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon, through the Wyoming Governor's Big Game License Coalition, is pleased to provide the Wild Sheep Foundation a 2021 Shiras Moose license for auction. By regulation, a Wyoming Governor's Moose License is only valid in open hunt areas with more than 10 Type 1 (any or antlered) moose licenses issued. For 2020, this license was valid in 10 hunt areas, specifically: Areas 3, 5, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 38 and 41. These hunt areas account for over 70% of annual Shiras moose harvest in Wyoming. The number of licenses issued by hunt areas MAY change from year to year. Season dates and license numbers for 2021 will be finalized by the WGF Commission in April, 2021. For further information, please contact Tim Thomas, Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The successful purchaser may hunt any open hunt area with more than 10 Type 1 licenses issued. The purchaser does not have to pick a specific hunt area and may hunt different hunt areas subject to season dates. The 5-year waiting period between moose licenses does not affect the ability to purchase a Wyoming Governor's Moose license. Purchasing this license is independent of applying for a moose license through the regular draw process. The license fee ($117 for Residents; $1,416 for Nonresidents) is waived. Preference points are not affected by purchase of a Wyoming Governor's Moose license. 90% of the auction proceeds are returned to Wyoming to fund moose projects via the Wyoming Governor's Big Game License Coalition.
