Wildlife Official Suggests Registering Boats, Now

Spring weather is here, so wildlife officials say now is the time to register boats and purchase AIS stickers.

Bud Stewart of the Game and Fish office in Sheridan made the announcement.

And, he said, boaters can purchase a combined package of registration and sticker.

He went on to explain the AIS sticker and why it’s needed.

He said the muscles would be a devastating problem if they made it into Wyoming waters because they multiply so quickly and clog up the pipes and pumps of water systems. So, as part of the Aquatic Invasive Species prevention program, boaters are informed that their water crafts must be cleaned, drained and dried before entering the waters of Wyoming.
