SHERIDAN - Elk hunters are helping with a brucellosis surveillance effort in the Bighorn Mountains by collecting blood samples from elk immediately after harvest. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department mailed blood sample kits to some elk hunters holding limited-quota licenses for hunt areas in the Bighorn Mountains. Hunters that did not receive a kit or will be hunting in a general area can obtain a blood sample collection kit at the Sheridan or Cody regional offices.

CAMP GUERNSEY JOINT TRAING CENTER, Wyo. - Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center will hold a military ammunition amnesty day Oct. 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This free program is designed for the public to turn-in unwanted military ammunition, with no questions asked, during disposal. Since unexploded military ordnance can be dangerous and unsafe to store in a private residence, Camp Guernsey is offering this opportunity to provide a safe means to dispose of the ammunition. This is not a requirement for the local community. Last Updated on Thursday, 17 October 2013 11:46Read more: Turn In Unwanted Military Munitions Oct. 30
