Hoping for an end to yearslong treaty rights fight

Crow tribal citizens are still fighting to exercise off-reservation hunting rights in Wyoming after a U.S. Supreme Court victory more than two and a half years ago and recent state court wins.

In 2019, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Crow tribal citizen Clayvin Herrera, who was cited for killing three bull elk in 2014 out of season and without a license during a hunt with several other tribal citizens. They had started on Crow tribal lands while following a group of elk and crossed into the Bighorn National Forest.
