Wyoming Disabled Hunters

Sorry the 2024 application period has ended.

You can apply for one, two, or all three species offered:  antelope, deer, or elk.

You need to prioritize your hunts as #1, #2, and/or #3.  (To clarify, one can hunt only a single species in a year with WDH.)  It’s all done with the same single online application.  If you are interested in just a single species and don’t have a strong desire for a 2nd or 3rd choice, then specify the single choice.  If you are almost equally interested in any of the three species, list them in priority order.  Don’t list a choice unless you have an interest in hunting it.

You must submit to Wyoming G&F the original paper applications as they need the applicant’s and doctor’s original signatures on each application.

Disabled-Veteran-Permit.pdf ( or  Disabled Hunter permit ( is required to determine eligibility for all our hunts.  You are eligible if you are:

  • Applicants who are 70% or higher service connected disabled veterans. Use this permit.
  • Permanently unable to walk at all times without the use of a wheelchair, walker or scooter.
  • Restricted by lung disease to the extent the person’s forced expiratory volume for one (1) second, when measured by a spirometer, is less than thirty-five (35) percent predicted, or arterial oxygen tension is less than fifty-five (55) mm/Hg on room air at rest.
  • Have a cardiac condition to the extent that your functional limitations are classified in severity as Class III or Class IV, according to standards established by the American Heart Association.
  • Have a permanent physical impairment that prevents you at all times from holding or shooting a firearm or bow in hand.
  • Have central visual acuity that permanently doesn't exceed 20/200 in the better eye with corrective lenses, or the widest diameter of the visual field is not greater than 20 degrees

Valid for a lifetime in the state of Wyoming.

The Hunting Season Extension Permit allows disabled hunters to go to the field five days before the season starts. Applicants qualify for this permit if they have:

  • A central visual acuity disability.
  • Upper extremity disability.
  • Permanently paralyzed over at least fifty (50%) of your body.
  • Are considered a quadriplegic or paraplegic
  • Physical disability so as to be permanently confined to a wheelchair (or similar device.)

As of Jan 1st, 2023, Wyoming G&F combined the disabled hunter permit and shoot-from-vehicle permit into one permit.  A veteran (70% or higher disability rating) should use the the disabled veteran permit, and can also apply for a season extension permit in the same application if their VA rating is 100%.
