The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission recently approved the creation of a new wildlife habitat management area on the southern portion of the Pilot Hill parcel. The commission authorized the move during a meeting Sept. 9 in Thermopolis.

The new WHMA will consist of 3,076 acres under Game and Fish management through an agreement between Albany County, Pilot Hill Inc. and Game and Fish. Albany County is leasing the parcel from the state, and Game and Fish agreed to pay $4,800 a year for 35 years to manage the WHMA, with that number increasing by about 2 percent a year to account for inflation.
