Utah Antlerless Big Game Permits Accepted Starting June 1st

Send by email Printer-friendly version Share this

You won't have to juggle a printed guidebook and a website when you apply for a cow elk, doe deer or doe pronghorn hunting permit for this fall's hunts.

Instead, everything you need to apply will be available in one spot -- www.wildlife.utah.gov/guidebooks.

Detailed maps, boundary descriptions, a list of available hunts, all of the information you need to apply and a link to the application itself are among the items you'll find at www.wildlife.utah.gov/guidebooks starting May 24.

Applications for permits will be accepted through www.wildlife.utah.gov starting June 1. Your application must be received through the website no later than 11 p.m. on June 21 to be included in the draw for permits.

"Once you get used to not having a printed guidebook," says Staci Coons, "we think you'll like it. When you go to our website, you'll find lots of good information. And all of it will be available in one spot."

Coons leads the Division of Wildlife Resources team that writes and produces Utah's hunting, fishing and trapping guidebooks.

For more information, call the nearest Division of Wildlife Resources office or the DWR's Salt Lake City office at (801) 538-4700.

It's a good thing I saw this

It's a good thing I saw this reminder as I've been planning to look into the doe tags that Utah has available. It appears that I have not drawn any buck tags there this year as up through today my credit card has not been charged. I have only fished there so far and would like to add a hunt to my list of activities in the state. there are not a lot of tags but I may apply for one of the antelope tags they have listed as the dates line up well and would not interfere with anything else if I actually drew. I just have to make sure this will not mess up my prefernce points if I do apply as I sure don't want to lose them for a doe tag.

Thanks for the update as we sometimes get to busy to remember them all.
