Winter wildlife closures ending

Winter range closures around Jackson Hole end Tuesday, allowing outdoor enthusiasts to access popular spots around the region.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department prohibition on antler hunting west of the Continental Divide also ends May 1.

But Grand Teton National Park officials have instituted some closures around sensitive habitat for bears, raptors, sage grouse and wolves.

The winter range closures in places such as Crystal Butte and Josie’s Ridge are meant to provide wintering wildlife some extra space away from human activity during a time when calories are few and hard to find.
