In Wyoming, the Indian casinos were among the fastest increasing in 2012. And overall spending by the gamblers at Indian casinos has been across the nation that year. The 2 resident Indian tribes in Wyoming, the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho, both operate casinos.

On Wednesday, the Casino City’s Indian Gaming Industry data showed that the Wyoming Indian casinos were just 2nd behind those in Texas. In the year 2012, the Wyoming casinos had gone up from fourteen tables to seventeen tables.

The date does not offer profit figures for Wyoming’s Indian casinos. But it stated that the casinos in the state saw a 4.3 percent increase in the year 2012. Across the nation, the profit increase at the Indian casinos had gone down 2% (to US$ 28.1 billion), which is 3.4 percent down from earlier year.

Meanwhile, Wyoming Game and Fish Department has stated that their elk hunting season in 2013 had registered an almost record number. The report shows that 25968 were hunt down. Still, the number was less than it was in the year 2012 when 26365 elk were reported to have taken.

According to reports, a release from t he department stated that the Wildlife managers continue to look after the fall in elk productivity as well as subsequent hunter opportunity in some places of north-west Wyoming, which is near the Yellowstone National Park. The hunter success is quite high on a statewide basis, there continues to be elk herd units in Cody and Jackson Regions where the hunters are now concerned about lower numbers of elk, and low hunter success. The calf productivity in many of these areas has been less.
