Utah mule deer

hey everyone, im new to the site.
i just recently was stationed at hill afb in utah and missed the draw for deer this year. i was wondering if i can get an OTC tag and when they come out. what units are available for that, etc... i was also wondering where would be a good place to hunt this year. im not looking for a trophy, just something to put meat on the table and have a good time with family/friends. id appreciate any tips. love the site by the way. thanks
Jeremy

Re: Utah mule deer

Without getting into the draw you are going to be limited to either the Northern area for a buck deer or you can put in for an anterless tag when they become available. You need to check out Utah's DOW site and see what you want to do. The Northern buck deer tags go on sale first come first served on June 17 but a lot of the region is private land witch you need permission to hunt on. There is public but it usually gets hunted fairly hard.

Re: Utah mule deer

You have to submit an application for the anterless but there are usually some left over. The guide book should be out later this month and the application process usually starts around the first of June.
