GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) — Vendors who sell Wyoming hunting licenses will no longer sell National Harvest Information Program permits.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says migratory bird hunters in the state will no longer be able to get the permits from vendors, but will be able to get them free from the department online.

The change is part of the game department's transition to a paperless application process.

Hunters must complete a HIP validation and must obtain a Wyoming HIP validation permit before they can legally hunt migratory game birds in the state.
