In July 2013, concerned sportsmen representing six hunting, angling and conservation organizations gathered to discuss the need to organize a Wyoming sportsmen’s coalition. They realized that Wyoming sportsmen needed to work collaboratively and speak with a united voice regarding important policy issues affecting our natural resources and sporting opportunities.
They resolved to create the Wyoming Sportsmen’s Alliance (WYSA). Initial discussions revolved around identifying joint concerns for fish, wildlife, habitat, hunting and angling within the State of Wyoming. Ensuring appropriate and ongoing funding for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department was seen as the top priority and the first issue the newly formed alliance would address as a group, as they understood that sound management of Wyoming’s wildlife is both an economic engine for Wyoming and an important cultural experience for the public.
The members of WYSA collectively represent approximately 50,000 Wyoming sportsmen and women. We are diverse geographically, politically, in the species we pursue and in our choice of weapon - whether it's a rifle, bow or flyrod. But we all agree on one thing: Wyoming's game and fish resources, and the hunting and angling traditions they enable us to preserve, are both valuable and irreplacable. As Governor Mead expressed in his State of the State address "If Wyoming's wildlife is worth the watching, it's worth supporting".
