The odds of drawing a Utah big game permit in 2007 are now available in a Division of Wildlife Resources report.

"Drawing odds usually don't change drastically from year to year, so I think hunters who are applying for a 2008 permit will be interested in seeing the report," says Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the DWR. "And the best part is, you can view it for free."

If you have access to the Internet, you can view and download the 2007 Big Game Odds Report for free.

To find the report, visit the big game information page at wildlife.utah.gov/hunting. Once you're there, scroll down to the big game statistics & drawing odds portion of the page. Click on the 2007 options, and the report should pop up.

The report is also available at DWR offices. You can read the report for free or buy a copy for $21.
