Just a few hardy souls were all-night campers in front of the fair building last Friday to be first in line when the doors opened at 7 a.m. Saturday for the sale of resident antelope hunting permits. Game Warden Ken Persson said that about 900 licenses were sold by noon when the last of the hunters made their purchase. Eight persons helped to write out licenses during the morning hours. Persson said there were just a few resident permits from each of the hunting areas of northeastern Wyoming were available. He didn’t expect them to last much longer.
