ASK GAME AND FISH
Q: How can I enjoy the Wyoming
outdoors mindfully this summer?
A:
Most people head outside because
they love the outdoors - it's
peaceful, it's natural and you have a chance at
some breathtaking views and fun memories.
For the outdoors to stay wild, it starts
with people being thoughtful of others -
including wildlife - who will be sharing
that space.
or heading out
Whether you're taking a fishing trip
to snap some wildlife
photographs, each person has a duty to make
sure the outdoors and all that we enjoy are
conserved. That's why the Wyoming Game
and Fish Department is participating in an
initiative called WY Responsibly, headed by
the Wyoming Office of Tourism.
" As the least populated state with the most
room for adventure, we feel the responsibility
to be mindful stewards of Wyoming's natural
spaces, wildlife, communities and culture.
Now more than ever people have a strong
desire to get out and explore the great
outdoors and experience wildlife, " said Diane
Shober, executive director of the Wyoming
Office of Tourism. " As a result, we created
WY Responsibly as a way to educate and
facilitate responsible travel. Visitors and
residents alike can join us in caring for

This summer, Game and Fish wants all
people to keep these points in mind:
* Plan ahead: Some popular places to
fish or enjoy wildlife could be crowded.
Make plans ahead of time and have a
backup plan. If you need ideas on a
new fishing spot, Game and Fish has
a new online fishing guide at https://

* Keep it clean: Keep a clean camp and
don't litter. Bears live throughout Wyoming
and can be drawn to campsites
because of garbage.
* Be fire aware: It's no secret Wyoming is in
a drought. Follow all fire rules and restrictions,
and make sure to fully extinguish
any fires when you're finished with them.
* Keep your distance: Wildlife are charismatic,
but they are best viewed from a
distance. Don't get close for a photograph
and don't feed wildlife.
* Respect the resource: Game and Fish is
working to keep the outdoors wild, but
we need your help. Stop at aquatic invasive
species check stations and follow land
and water access rules.

Department public information officer.
