Goose Management Program


The Goose Management Program for Hidden Bridges Golf Course is starting up again. If anyone wants to participate in the program they need to come into the Police Department and sign a permission slip, and get the permission from the landowner letter. These two forms will need to be kept on your person while you are hunting.

There are maps of the 4 new hunting areas printed with guidelines for hunters to follow at the Police Department.  Signs and hunt areas will also be posted at Hidden Bridges.

Hunters must abide by all applicable Wyoming Game and Fish regulations, to include use of non toxic shot shells, proper licensing and waterfowl stamp, and adherence to established waterfowl seasons.

Thanks for your participation and hunting safely.

Questions or concerns call Sergeant Gerleman at the Sheridan Police Department

The Sheridan Police Department, in conjunction with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department would like to take this opportunity to inform area residents that the Deer Management Plan implemented by the City of Sheridan in 2007, will again be continuing for the 2017 hunting season. All parties interested in bow hunting within the City Limits must first register with the Sheridan Police Department. Registration may be done at the Sheridan Police Department, or by filling out the documents attached to this announcement. Any member of the department can assist residents with this registration. As a reminder, the Deer Management Plan is a bow hunting only opportunity and persons choosing to hunt privately owned land must first secure permission from the landowner.

Remember, all Wyoming Game and Fish Regulations apply to the Deer Management Plan. Thank you and good luck this fall.

Mental Health/First Aid Training

posted Aug 16, 2017, 12:11 PM by Rachel Depew   [ updated Aug 16, 2017, 12:11 PM ]

1 in 5 Americans has a mental illness, but many are reluctant to seek help or might not know where to turn for care. Unlike physical conditions, symptoms of mental health and substance use problems can be difficult to detect. For friends and family members, it can be hard to know when and how to step in. As a result, those in need of mental health services often do not get them until it is too late.

Just as CPR helps even those without clinical training assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid prepares participants to interact with a person experiencing a mental health crisis. Mental Health First Aiders learn a 5-step action plan that guides them through the process of reaching out and offering appropriate support.

The Sheridan Police Department will be offering Mental Health First Aid training on September 30, 2017. Class size is limited and the cost is $20.00 a person. If you are interested in signing up or would like more information, please contact Officer Howie Fitzpatrick at or 307-672-2413.

Be the one to make a difference!
