Greetings from the WYOGA President


Lee Livingston, WYOGA President I’m a numbers guy. The state of Wyoming is home to 323 licensed outfitters. Of these 323 107, or 33%, are WYOGA members. Yet, in the 2015 hunting season these 107 WYOGA Outfitters outfitted over 50% of the guided deer hunters in Wyoming, over 50% of the guided Antelope hunters in Wyoming, and they outfitted over 60% of the guided elk hunters in Wyoming! This means that in 2015, 33% of the Wyoming outfitters, WYOGA members, were responsible for outfitting over 53% of the outfitted hunters in Wyoming. This shows that WYOGA members are truly serious about the business and providing top quality hunting experiences for their clientele.

When you flip through the pages Wyoming Outdoors or visit our website, you will find information on these dedicated professionals. And that’s what the members of WYOGA are—professionals. While outfitting for most is a passion, it is also a business and they strive to provide their clientele with premier outdoor experiences. They do this by having top quality crew, livestock, and equipment. So you can rest assured that when you book with a WYOGA member you will be booking with a professional that has your best interests at heart and will do their best to provide you with many great memories and trophies.

But providing high quality experiences is not all that the members of WYOGA do. They spend countless hours and thousands of their own dollars fighting the battles to help insure that Wyoming continues to be the best destination for the hunters from both within and without Wyoming’s borders. In the past year, WYOGA members traveled to Washington, DC to lobby for the de-listing of the grizzly bear and the wolf. They testified in front of the Western Governor’s Association concerning the failure of the endangered species act. They also met several times with Governor Matt Mead about wolves, grizzlies and hunting in general. In addition, many WYOGA members have had countless meetings with top-level Wyoming Game and Fish personnel as well as members of the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission. In short, WYOGA has its finger on the pulse of the wildlife and hunting world in Wyoming and is working diligently to make sure that no hunting opportunities are lost for all of the sportsmen and sportswomen who love to hunt here.

So flip through the pages of Wyoming Outdoors and enjoy not only the info on the members, but the great advertisers and fantastic stories.

Good Hunting,


Lee Livingston, President
Wyoming Outfitters & Guides Association
