Wyoming also offers a mentorship program for aspiring hunters who do not have their hunter safety certification, but would like to have a hunting experience before committing to the certification process.

For hunters who are new to the Cowboy State or those who are not residents of Wyoming, certifications from other states are allowed, but proof of certification is required to obtain a license and must be in the field with hunters at all times.
