History of License
In 2013, Governor Mead began gifting bison licenses to the Wyoming Big Game License Coalition and coordinating sales through the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation. He gifted the bison licenses, whose proceeds when sold, would be twofold:
1. Fund wildlife projects across the state
2. Support Wyoming nonprofits
Applying for the Grant
If you are a Wyoming nonprofit, we encourage you to submit an application for your opportunity to sell a bison license.
All qualifying applicants will be entered into a drawing. In early May, Governor Mead will draw names to determine which nonprofit receives a license.
If drawn, your organization will receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the bison license. The Wyoming Wildlife Foundation is happy to help sell your license on our auction site.
