Wyoming Game and Fish moves ahead with budget cuts

Posted:

Wyoming outdoorsmen will see services they are used to getting reduced or abandoned.

The Game and Fish Commission decided Tuesday to cut $4.6 million from the agency's budget for the current fiscal year.

Northeast Wyoming reservoirs will receive a third less of fish stock next year.

Game and Fish workers who spend a lot of time in the field will have to stay in their offices more often to reduce costs.

"When people see a wounded deer or have a call for assistance from Game and Fish, we're just going to have to ask for patience because the number of personnel we have, the time we're allowed to work has all been reduced," said Game and Fish public information specialist Warren Mischke.

Mischke also says the agency will not fill positions recently vacated by retirees throughout the state.
