U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke today applauded President Donald J. Trump’s exemption from Executive Order 13658 for Recreational Services on Federal Lands. The Presidential exemption applies only to outfitters and guides who operate on Federal lands and does not apply to lodging, food service, or other businesses that operate on Federal lands, such as national parks, monuments, recreation areas, and other areas. The order was signed ahead of Memorial Day weekend, which is the unofficial start to peak season for many guides and outfitters.

Beginning this year, the Wyoming Hunter Defense Fund will no longer be managed as a separate organization. The WHDF will be managed under the WYOGA umbrella. This move will provide a more efficient tax structure for WYOGA. In turn, this will allow WYOGA to make the best use of funding to provide members with a continued political presence and influence. Please continue to support the WHDF by sending your donations to WYOGA.
