Big game permits
Time is running out to submit your application to hunt big game animals in Utah this fall. Applications to hunt big game — including deer — are due through wildlife.utah.gov no later than 11 p.m. on March 6. Judi Tutorow, wildlife licensing coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, shares an important piece of advice: Apply before the last day of the application period. “Thousands of hunters wait until the last day to apply,” Tutorow says. “Receiving that much traffic — in such a short period of time — slows our website and the entire application process down.” Hunters can apply for a permit at wildlife.utah.gov. Everything you need to know to apply for a permit is available in the 2014 Utah Big Game Application Guidebook. You can get the free guidebook at wildlife.utah.gov/guidebooks, at DWR offices and from more than 300 hunting and fishing license agents across Utah.
