"Fifty percent of Wyoming is private land, mostly owned and managed by the state’s residents. We would not have the abundance and diversity of wildlife we enjoy without the contributions of habitat by private landowners. A close second to habitat in scale and importance is the tremendous access to hunt, fish and trap — opportunities that are provided by private landowners around the state. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Wyoming Game and Fish Department’s Access Yes program that is dedicated to providing access on private lands. At Game and Fish, we want to take some time on behalf of hunters, anglers and wildlife to say thanks."
