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

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.
