Buck Deer Permits On Sale Starting June 17
Three ways to buy Utah buck deer permits not taken in this year's big game draws await hunters starting at 7:30 a.m. on June 17.
Hunters can buy a permit from at least 107 hunting license agents in the state, from the Division of Wildlife Resources' Internet Web site (wildlife.utah.gov) and from DWR offices. A list of agents who'll sell permits starting June 17 is available at the DWR's Internet Web site (wildlife.utah.gov/licenses).
More than 10,100 statewide general archery, 5,500 Northeastern Region rifle and muzzleloader and 17,300 Northern Region rifle and muzzleloader permits will be available for purchase.
"Hunters have never had this many options available to them before, and we're excited to provide these options to them," said Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
Tutorow says when permits have gone on sale in the past, long lines have formed at some of the DWR offices. To save time, she encourages hunters to visit the Web site or a hunting license agent.
"You need a major credit card to buy a permit from the Web site but if you have one, the Web site is a great option," she said. "Hunting license agents are also a good choice. Most of them are open on weekends and evenings and they may be closer to your home than a DWR office."
